ILcdGeoReferenceinstances such as
public interface ILcdVerticalDatum extends Serializable
ILcdVerticalDatumis used as a reference system for lon-lat-height coordinates. It is defined by a geoid. A geoid is defined by the geoidHeight with respect to an
A height expressed with respect to the geoid is called the orthometric height.
The ellipsoidal height, also called the geodetic height, is the sum of the geoid height and the orthometric height. For a geoid datum where the geoid height equals zero everywhere, the orthometric height equals the ellipsoidal height.
ILcdVerticalDatum is always used together with a
ILcdGeodeticDatum, which is also called a horizontal datum
in this context.
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Gets the geoid height in meters at a given lat-lon point.
Gets the name of this
double geoidHeight(double aLongitude, double aLatitude)
aLongitude- longitude of the lat-lon point.
aLatitude- latitude of the lat-lon point.
