A world created in Unigine uses Cartesian coordinates, whereas real-world simulators normally use geospatial data. To make these two universes match, UNIGINE provides GeodeticsPlugin.

This plugin allows translating GPS latitude, longitude, and altitude coordinates to X, Y, and Z and vice versa. The solution is applicable for both flat rectangular terrain areas and the planet-shaped Terrain Global.
