x3dom.nodeTypes. GeoOrigin

The GeoOrigin node defines an absolute geospatial location and an implicit local coordinate frame against which geometry is referenced. This node is used to translate from geographical coordinates into a local Cartesian coordinate system which can be managed by the X3D browser. This node is deprecated as of X3D 3.3

HTML Encoding and Default Values

<GeoOrigin geoCoords='0,0,0' geoSystem='['GD','WE']' metadata='X3DMetadataObject' rotateYUp='false' ></GeoOrigin>




Constructor for GeoOrigin

Name Type Argument Default Description
ctx Object <optional>
null context object, containing initial settings like namespace


These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
geoCoords SFVec3d 0,0,0 The geoCoords field is used to specify a local coordinate frame for extended precision.
geoSystem MFString ['GD','WE'] {["GD", ...], ["UTM", ...], ["GC", ...]} The geoSystem field is used to define the spatial reference frame.
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject X3DNode Field to add metadata information
rotateYUp SFBool false The rotateYUp field is used to specify whether coordinates of nodes that use this GeoOrigin are to be rotated such that their up direction is aligned with the X3D Y axis. The default behavior is to not perform this operation.
