Transformations convert data between different geographic coordinate systems or between different vertical coordinate systems. This is sometimes represented as a transformation from a Cartesian system (x 1, x 2, x 3) to the dimensionless system (ξ 1, ξ 2, ξ 3). 2-D Coordinate Transforms of Vectors The academic potato provides an excellent example of how coordinate transformations apply to vectors, while at the same time stressing that it is the coordinate system that is rotating and not the vector... or potato. c. Alt-Azimuth Coordinate System The Altitude-Azimuth coordinate system is the most familiar to the general public. This works on individually entered coordinates, by range of point numbers and with on-screen entities. 4.3.In Fig. Any coordinate system transformation that doesn’t change the orientation of a geometrical object is an orientation-preserving transformation, or a direct transformation. Its units are angular, usually degrees. ... the process will include geographic transformations. Transformations. These transformation equations are derived and discussed in what follows. It’s shaped like a globe—spherical. The ranges of the variables are 0 < p < °° The dq coordinate system is rotating at the synchronous speed. Therefore, the transformation of translation is an example of a direct transformation. coordinate system. B.1.3 Rotation about a coordinate axis Coordinate Systems • Model Coordinate System(MCS): identifies the shapes of object and it is attached to the object. The coordinate transformation from αβ coordinate system to synchronous rational dq coordinate system is shown in Fig. Θ d is the electrical angle between d axis and α axis. • Viewing Coordinate System (VCS): Defined by the viewpoint and viewsite Coordinate Systems and Transformations Topics: 1. 30 Coordinate Systems and Transformation azimuthal angle, is measured from the x-axis in the xy-plane; and z is the same as in the Cartesian system. A ne transformations 4. The origin of this coordinate system is the observer and it is rarely shifted to any other point. Coordinate Transformation. But without a coordinate system, there is no way to describe the vector. Figure 1.5.1: a vector represented using two different coordinate systems . The relationship between the components in one coordinate system and the components in a second coordinate system are called the transformation equations. Rotation, translation, scaling, and shear 5. Therefore the MCS moves with the object in the WCS • World Coordinate System (WCS): identifies locations of objects in the world in the application. 4.3, dq axes are mutually perpendicular axes rotating at the synchronous electrical angle speed ω s in space. While the horizon is an intuitively obvious concept, a The fundamental plane of the system contains the observer and the horizon. This is when transformations are useful. Coordinate systems and frames 2. Change of frames 3. After defining the coordinate system that matches your data, you may still want to use data in a different coordinate system. Transforms coordinates between local, State Plane 27, State Plane 83, Latitude/Longitude, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) and many other projections, including regional and user-defined projections. The general analysis of coordinate transformations usually starts with the equations in a Cartesian basis (x, y, z) and speaks of a transformation of a general alternative coordinate system (ξ, η, ζ). These are calculations that convert coordinates from one GCS to another. A geographic coordinate system (GCS) is a reference framework that defines the locations of features on a model of the earth. The potato on the left has a vector on it. Homogeneous Coordinates •Add an extra dimension (same as frames) • in 2D, we use 3-vectors and 3 x 3 matrices • In 3D, we use 4-vectors and 4 x 4 matrices •The extra coordinate is now an arbitrary value, w • You can think of it as “scale,” or “weight” • For all transformations except perspective, you can
