Instance of ICoordSystem
Class that describes the geometry of a Cartesian plane. Used as the default coordinate system when constructing geodetic lines in non-standard projections.
Returns the shortest distance (along a geodetic line) between the two set points (in meters).
|solveDirectProblem(startPoint, direction, distance)|
Solves the first (direct) geodesic problem: where we will end up, if we start from a specified point and move in the specified direction for the specified distance, without turning. The following data is a solution for the direct geodetic problem:
|solveInverseProblem(startPoint, endPoint[, reverseDirection])|
Solves the second (inverse) geodetic problem: construct the shortest route between two points on the mapped surface and determine the distance and direction of movement. Note that on the map of the Earth's surface, the shortest routes are shown as crooked lines. For geo objects in the API, you can enable the mode for displaying shortest distances between points using the "geodesic" option.
