Unigine::GeodeticPivot Class

Header: #include <UnigineGeodetics.h>
Inherits: Node

This class is used to create and modify a geodetic pivot object that is used to place world objects on their real world positions (latitude, longitude and altitude).

Notice
Geodetic pivot object works only in the Engineering and Sim versions of UNIGINE SDK. In other editions, it's equivalent to NodeDummy.
The geodetic pivot contains an ellipsoid with a pivot point.

GeodeticPivot Class

Members


static GeodeticPivotPtr create ( ) #

GeodeticPivot constructor. Creates a GeodeticPivot instance with the default settings:
  • The origin is set to dvec3(0.0,0.0,0.0).
  • The size of the curving region is 2048000×2048000 km.
  • The resolution of the region texture is 2048.

static Ptr<GeodeticPivot> cast ( const Ptr<Node> & node ) #

Casts a GeodeticPivot out of the Node instance.

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Node> & node - Pointer to Node.

Return value

Pointer to GeodeticPivot.

void setEllipsoid ( const Ptr<Ellipsoid> & ellipsoid ) #

Sets an Ellipsoid to be used for the Geodetic Pivot.
Notice
Modifying the ellipsoid of the Geodetic Pivot directly makes the pivot's state inconsistent. You should force the GeodeticPivot node to update its internal state according to the modified ellipsoid by setting it via the setEllipsoid() method.
Source code (C++)
// Creating a new geodetic pivot
GeodeticPivotPtr pivot = GeodeticPivot::create();

// setting the local (X - Y - Z) origin basis for it
pivot->setOriginBasis(GeodeticPivot::ORIGIN_BASIS_LOCAL);

// getting an ellipsoid currently used by the geodetic pivot
EllipsoidPtr ellipsoid = pivot->getEllipsoid();

// setting a fast calculation mode for the ellipsoid
ellipsoid->setMode(Ellipsoid::MODE_FAST);

// setting a new semimajor axis for the ellipsoid
ellipsoid->setSemimajorAxis(6378137.0f - 500.0f);

/* ... */

// force updating the geodetic pivot according to the modified ellipsoid
pivot->setEllipsoid(ellipsoid);

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Ellipsoid> & ellipsoid - Ellipsoid to be set.

Ptr<Ellipsoid> getEllipsoid ( ) #

Returns the Ellipsoid currently used by the Geodetic Pivot.
Notice
Modifying the ellipsoid of the Geodetic Pivot directly makes the pivot's state inconsistent. You should force the GeodeticPivot node to update its internal state according to the modified ellipsoid by setting it via the setEllipsoid() method.
Source code (C++)
// Creating a new geodetic pivot
GeodeticPivotPtr pivot = GeodeticPivot::create();

// setting the local (X - Y - Z) origin basis for it
pivot->setOriginBasis(GeodeticPivot::ORIGIN_BASIS_LOCAL);

// getting an ellipsoid currently used by the geodetic pivot
EllipsoidPtr ellipsoid = pivot->getEllipsoid();

void setOrigin ( const Math::dvec3 & origin ) #

Sets a new position (latitude, longitude and altitude) on the ellipsoid.

GeodeticPivotPtr pivot = GeodeticPivot::create();
// update the origin
dvec3 new_york_origin = dvec3(40.71427,-74.00597,57.0);
pivot->setOrigin(new_york_origin);
ObjectMeshStaticPtr flat_new_york_ground = ObjectMeshStatic::create("flat_new_york_ground.mesh");
pivot->addChild(flat_new_york_ground); // the mesh will be bent once ObjectMeshStatic become a child of GeodeticPivot
