Cartesian vs Angular Data Input¶
With regards to data entry in the Layer Manager, most of the parameters can be described in either angular or cartesian terms. This is to say that when constructing a layer, the ‘start’ and ‘end’ coordinates can either be described as depth and height (cartesian), or as range and angle (angular). There are interdependencies implemented within the application which automatically convert between angular and cartesian continuously. That is to say that when a depth and height is entered, the range and angle are automatically computed & vice versa. It is therefore possible to mix and match both angular and cartesian parameters within the same controller.
