Class: map.geodesy.RectifyingLatitudeConverter
Package: map.geodesy

Geodetic latitude to rectifying latitude


mu = forward(converter,phi)
mu = forward(converter,phi,angleUnit)


mu = forward(converter,phi) returns the rectifying latitude corresponding to geodetic latitude phi.

mu = forward(converter,phi,angleUnit) specifies the units of input phi and output mu.

Input Arguments


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


Geodetic latitude of one or more points, specified as a scalar value, vector, matrix, or N-D array of singles or doubles. Values must be in units that match the input argument angleUnit, if supplied, and in degrees, otherwise.


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

Default: ‘degrees'

Output Arguments


Rectifying latitude of each element in phi, returned as a scalar value, vector, matrix, or N-D array. Units are determined by the input argument angleUnit, if supplied; values are in degrees, otherwise.
