Class GeoTouchSensorExample

java.lang.Object
Basic.Geospatial.GeoTouchSensorExample

public class GeoTouchSensorExample extends Object

This example shows the use of the GeoTouchSensor in order to retrieve the geographic coordinate that the user is pointing to. The scene displays a model of the earth built using a GeoElevationGrid, it then displays a red sphere at the point on the earth where the user is pointing to with the mouse, and also displays the latitude, longitude, and elevation at that point as a text label.
