x3dom.nodeTypes. GeoViewpoint

The GeoViewpoint node allows the specification of a viewpoint in terms of a geospatial coordinate. This node can be used wherever a Viewpoint node can be used and can be combined with Viewpoint nodes in the same scene.

Fields

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
bind SFBool false X3DViewpointNode Pushes/pops the node on/from the top of the bindable stack
centerOfRotation SFVec3f 0,0,0 The centerOfRotation field specifies a center about which to rotate the user's eyepoint when in EXAMINE mode. The coordinates are provided in the coordinate system specified by geoSystem.
description SFString "" X3DViewpointNode Description of the bindable node
elevationScaling SFBool true Enable/disable elevation scaled speed for automatic adjustment of user movement as recommended in spec. Custom field to allow disabling for performance
fieldOfView SFFloat 785398 [0, pi] Preferred minimum viewing angle from this viewpoint in radians. Small field of view roughly corresponds to a telephoto lens, large field of view roughly corresponds to a wide-angle lens. Hint: modifying Viewpoint distance to object may be better for zooming. Warning: fieldOfView may not be correct for different window sizes and aspect ratios. Interchange profile hint: this field may be ignored.
geoOrigin SFNode X3DViewpointNode The geoOrigin 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.
headlight SFBool undefined Enable/disable directional light that always points in the direction the user is looking. Removed in X3D V3.3. See NavigationInfo still supported but required changing default to undefined since could be already given by NavigationInfo
isActive SFBool false X3DViewpointNode
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject X3DViewpointNode Field to add metadata information
navType MFString undefined Specifies the navigation type. Removed in X3D V3.3. See NavigationInfo still supported but required changing default to undefined since could be already given by NavigationInfo
orientation SFRotation 0,0,1,0 The orientation fields of the Viewpoint node specifies relative orientation to the default orientation.
position SFVec3d 0,0,100000 The position fields of the Viewpoint node specifies a relative location in the local coordinate system. The coordinates are provided in the coordinate system specified by geoSystem.
speedFactor SFFloat 0 [0, inf] The speedFactor field of the GeoViewpoint node is used as a multiplier to the elevation-based velocity that the node sets internally; i.e., this is a relative value and not an absolute speed as is the case for the NavigationInfo node.
