EllipsoidSurfacePosition Method

Computes the location of a second surface point along the geodesic passing through the provided surface point having the indicated heading at the provided surface point and located at the specified distance from the provided surface point.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Geometry.Shapes
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 19.5.402.0 (19.5.402.0)
Syntax
public Cartographic SurfacePosition(
	Cartographic initial,
	double heading,
	double distance
)

Parameters

initial
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartographic
The initial planetodetic surface point.
heading
Type: SystemDouble
The initial heading.
distance
Type: SystemDouble
The surface distance separating the two surface points.

Return Value

Type: Cartographic
The planetodetic location of the second surface coordinate.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
UnsupportedCaseException The scalene case of a geodesic ellipsoid is not currently modeled and will be in a future release.
Remarks
Since the distance is measured on the surface of the ellipsoid, the height coordinate information is ignored.
