VerticalType

Description

[PersistentEnum]
enum Tinman.Terrain.Georef.VerticalType

Enumeration of types for vertical coordinate values.

Public / Constants

Ellipsoid

public constant Ellipsoid → (0:int32)

Vertical coordinates are measured relative from the ellipsoid surface.

Gravity

public constant Gravity → (1:int32)

Vertical coordinates are gravity-related (e.g. measured relative from the geoid surface).

Coordinates of this type can usually be interpreted as pressure altitude resp. height above mean sea level.

Height

public constant Height → (2:int32)

Vertical coordinates are measured relative from the terrain surface.

Coordinates of this type can be interpreted as radio altitude.

Using this type requires heightmap accesses, which may cause blocking I/O work.

HeightMesh

public constant HeightMesh → (3:int32)

Vertical coordinates are measured relative from the terrain surface mesh, in its current state of tessellation.

Coordinates of this type can be interpreted as radio altitude.

When the terrain surface mesh has not been specified resp. is not ready (see IMesh.IsReady), vertical coordinates of this type will revert to Height, which may cause blocking I/O work.
