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

Rectifying latitude to geodetic latitude


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


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

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

Input Arguments


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


Rectifying 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


Geodetic latitude of each element in mu, 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.
