pyinterp.geodetic.System#

class pyinterp.geodetic.System(parameters: Optional[Tuple[float, float]] = None)[source]#

Bases: pyinterp.core.geodetic.System

World Geodetic System (WGS).

Parameters

parameters

A tuple that defines:

  • the semi-major axis of ellipsoid, in meters.

  • flattening of the ellipsoid.

Note

If no arguments are provided, the constructor initializes a WGS-84 ellipsoid.

Examples

>>> import pyinterp
>>> wgs84 = pyinterp.geodetic.System()
>>> wgs84
System(6378137.0, 0.0033528106647474805)
>>> grs80 = pyinterp.geodetic.System((6378137, 1 / 298.257222101))
>>> grs80
System(6378137.0, 0.003352810681182319)

Attributes

flattening

Flattening of ellipsoid (\(f=\frac{a-b}{a}\)).

semi_major_axis

Semi-major axis of ellipsoid, in meters (\(a\)).
