Interface GeoLocation

All Superinterfaces:
X3DBoundedObject, X3DChildNode, X3DGroupingNode, X3DNode
All Known Implementing Classes:
GeoLocation

public interface GeoLocation extends X3DGroupingNode
GeoLocation positions a regular X3D model onto earth's surface.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DGroupingNode,X3DVisibleObject] GeoLocation positions a regular X3D model onto earth's surface. GeoLocation can contain children and GeoOrigin nodes.
  • Hint: X3D for Advanced Modeling (X3D4AM) slideset https://x3dgraphics.com/slidesets/X3dForAdvancedModeling/GeospatialComponentX3dEarth.pdf
  • Warning: requires X3D profile='Full' or else include <component name='Geospatial' level='1'/>
  • Warning: avoid having GeoLocation or GeoTransform as a parent or ancestor node of each other, since multiple geospatial transformations then occur with unpredictable results.
  • Hint: GeoLocation adjusts orientation of children models appropriately: +Y axis is up direction for that local area (i.e. normal to tangent plane on the geospatial ellipsoid), -Z axis points towards north pole, and +X axis points east.

Package hint: This interface is defined by the X3D Java Language Binding Specification for the Scene Authoring Interface (SAI).
