inverse

Class: map.geodesy.IsometricLatitudeConverter
Package: map.geodesy

Isometric latitude to geodetic latitude

Syntax

phi = inverse(converter,psi)
phi = inverse(converter,psi,angleUnit)

Description

phi = inverse(converter,psi) returns the geodetic latitude corresponding to the isometric latitude psi.

phi = inverse(converter,psi,angleUnit) where angleUnit specifies the units of output phi.

Input Arguments

converter

Isometric latitude converter, specified as a scalar map.geodesy.IsometricLatitudeConverter object.

psi

Isometric latitude of one or more points, specified as a scalar value, vector, matrix, or N-D array of singles or doubles. Isometric latitude is a dimensionless number and does not have an angle unit.

angleUnit

Units of angles, specified as 'degrees' or 'radians'.

Default: ‘degrees'

Output Arguments

phi

Geodetic latitude of one or more points, specified as a scalar value, vector, matrix, or N-D array of singles or doubles. Units are determined by the input argument angleUnit, if supplied, and in degrees, otherwise.
