# scircle1

Small circle from center and radius

## Syntax

## Description

`[`

finds the latitude and longitude coordinates of a small circle. Specify the geographic
coordinates of the center of the small circle using `lat`

,`lon`

] = scircle1(`lat0`

,`lon0`

,`r`

)`lat0`

and
`lon0`

. Specify the radius of the small circle using
`r`

. This syntax assumes that the radius is a spherical distance in
degrees.

`[`

,
where `lat`

,`lon`

] = scircle1(`method`

,___)`method`

is `"rh"`

, specifies that distances from
the center of the small circle are rhumb line distances. The default for
`method`

is `"gc"`

, which specifies that distances
from the center of the small circle are great circle distances (for a sphere) or geodesic
distances (for an ellipsoid).

returns the
latitude and longitude coordinates of the small circle in the matrix
`mat`

= scircle1(___)`mat`

.
