coordtrans3() 2D Coordinate Transformation and Reference System Transition with notation only for numeric coordinates. Prototype of the DLL function in C++ syntax (attend lower case!): extern "C" __declspec(dllimport) unsigned long __stdcall coordtrans3( double nCoordXQ, // 8 Byte double nCoordYQ, // 8 Byte unsigned short nCoordSysQ, // 2 Byte unsigned short nRefSysQ, // 2 Byte unsigned short nNotationQ, // 2 Byte double *nCoordXZ, // 4 Byte (Pointer) double *nCoordYZ, // 4 Byte (Pointer) unsigned short nCoordSysZ, // 2 Byte unsigned short nRefSysZ, // 2 Byte unsigned short nNotationZ, // 2 Byte unsigned short nStripZ); // 2 Byte Prototype of the DLL function in Visual Objects syntax: _DLL function coordtrans3(; nCoordXQ as real8,; // 8 Byte nCoordYQ as real8,; // 8 Byte nCoordSysQ as word,; // 2 Byte nRefSysQ as word,; // 2 Byte nNotationQ as word,; // 2 Byte nCoordXZ ref real8,; // 4 Byte (Pointer) nCoordYZ ref real8,; // 4 Byte (Pointer) nCoordSysZ as word,; // 2 Byte nRefSysZ as word,; // 2 Byte nNotationZ as word,; // 2 Byte nStripZ as word); // 2 Byte as logic pascal:geodll32.coordtrans3 // 4 Byte Prototype of the DLL function in VisualBasic syntax: Private Declare Function coordtrans3 Lib "GeoDLL32" ( _ ByVal nKoordXQ As Double, _ '8 Byte ByVal nKoordYQ As Double, _ '8 Byte ByVal nKoordSysQ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByVal nRefSysQ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByVal nNotationQ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByRef nKoordXZ As Double, _ '4 Byte (Pointer) ByRef nKoordYZ As Double, _ '4 Byte (Pointer) ByVal nKoordSysZ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByVal nRefSysZ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByVal nNotationZ As UShort, _ '2 Byte ByVal nStreifenZ As UShort) _ '2 Byte As UInteger '4 Byte The function coordtrans3() is similar to the function coordtrans(). The difference is that only numeric coordinates and no alphanumeric coordinates are transformed and that for geographical coordinates a notation can be given as a parameter. The function converts the numeric source coordinates nCoordXQ and nCoordYQ from the source Coordinate System nCoordSysQ to the numeric target coordinates nCoordXZ and nCoordYZ of the target Coordinate System nCoordSysZ. The transformation is accomplished with high exactness and great speed. The difference between the function coordtrans3() and the function coordtrans3d3() is that this is a 2D transformation. Thereby in the case of using different source and target Reference Systems the ellipsoidical height is not included in the calculation because it has only a very small influence to the position accuracy. The passed source coordinates and the calculated target coordinates are examined for the range validity within their Coordinate Systems and for syntactic correctness. The range validity is specified in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". The range and syntax check can be switched on or off with the function setcoordarea(). If in nCoordSysQ or in nCoordSysZ the values 1000 or 1100 are passed, the function uses the parameters of the user-defined Coordinate Systems passed before by the functions setusercoordsys1() and/or setusercoordsys2() and the earth ellipsoids defined before by the functions setuserellsource() and setuserelltarget() With the Coordinate Transformation a Reference System Transition from the geodetic Reference System nRefSysQ of the source Coordinate System can be considered to the geodetic Reference System nRefSysZ of the target Coordinate System. If in nRefSysQ or in nRefSysZ the value 0 is passed, then the geodetic Reference Systems, usual for the respective Coordinate Systems, are taken as a basis for the Reference System Transition. The standard reference systems are specified in the list of "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". If in nRefSysQ or in nRefSysZ the value 1000 is passed, the function uses the parameters of the user-defined Reference Systems passed before by the functions setuserrefsys() and the earth ellipsoids defined before by the functions setuserellsource() and setuserelltarget() If in nRefSysQ or in nRefSysZ the value 1100 is passed or if both parameters have same value (larger than 0), no Reference System Transition is performed. Then the earth ellipsoids, usual for the respective Coordinate Systems, are taken as a basis for the Coordinate Transformation. The standard earth ellipsoids are specified in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". If in nRefSysQ or in nRefSysZ the value 1150 is passed, no Reference System Transition is performed. Then the earth ellipsoids defined before by the functions setuserellsource() and setuserelltarget() are taken as a basis for the Coordinate Transformation. If in nRefSysQ or in nRefSysZ the value 1200 is passed, no Reference System Transition nor Ellipsoid Transition are performed. If for Reference Systems nRefSysQ or nRefSysZ no Reference System parameters are defined, only an Ellipsoid Transition is performed, but no Reference System Transition is performed. During transformations from or to geographical coordinates with the parameters nNotation? can be selected between several possible notations (ways of writing) for the parameters nCoordXQ and nCoordYQ and/or nCoordXZ and nCoordYZ: [degrees] [degrees, minutes, seconds] [degrees, minutes] [seconds] [gon] For transformations to the target Coordinate Systems Gauss-Krueger and UTM the meridian strip nStripZ, to which the target coordinates are to refer, can be given. The given meridian strip should not deviate more than 3 strips from the native meridian strip of the target Coordinate System. If in nStripZ the value 0 is passed, an automatic computation of the native meridians strip from the geographical length takes place. The following transformations are possible: Coordinate Transformations with maintaining the Reference System. Coordinate Transformations with Reference System Transition. Coordinate Transformation with Ellipsoid Transition when Reference System parameters not defined. Reference System Transition with maintaining the Coordinate System. Change of the notation (way of writing) with geographical coordinates. Change of the meridian strip with Gauss-Krueger and UTM coordinates. Conversion in the native meridian strip with Gauss-Krueger and UTM coordinates. The parameters are passed and/or returned as follows: nCoordXQ Longitude, East or X component of the numeric source coordinate. The input format of the coordinate (notation) is described in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". nCoordYQ Latitude, North or Y component of the numeric source coordinate. The input format of the coordinate (notation) is described in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". nCoordSysQ Coordinate System of the source coordinates. (see list "Coordinate Reference Systems"). Exceptions: The alphanumeric Coordinate Systems described there are not supported here. The geographical coordinate systems described there are summarized here by passing of the value 1 in nCoordSysQ. nRefSysQ Geodetic Reference System of the source coordinates. (see list "Coordinate Reference Systems"). nNotationQ Notation (way of writing) of the geographical source coordinates. The notation affects only if nCoordSysQ = 1! 0 Geographic coordinates [degrees]: vddd / vdd d degrees and decimal fraction of a degree 1 Geographic coordinates [deg, min, sec] vdddmmss / vddmmss d degrees m minutes s seconds and decimal fraction of a second 2 Geographic coordinates [deg, min]: vdddmm / vddmm d degrees m Minutes and decimal fraction of a minute 3 Geographic coordinates [sec]: vsssssss / vsssssss s Seconds and decimal fraction of a second 4 Geographic coordinates [gon]: vggg / vggg g Gon (400 gon = 360 degrees) and decimal fraction of a gon More information about the notations can be found at the end of the list "coordinates and Reference Systems". nCoordXZ Longitude, East or X component of the numeric target (ref) coordinate. The return format of the coordinate (notation) is described in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". nCoordYZ Latitude, North or Y component of the numeric target (ref) coordinate. The return format of the coordinate (notation) is described in the list "Defaults of the Coordinate Systems". nCoordSysZ Coordinate System of the target coordinates.

The notations of the geographical coordinates are described under the parameter nNotationQ further above. nStripZ Meridian strip to use. This parameter has only an effect, if a "Transversal Mercator meridian strip system" is registered in nCoordSysZ. 0 Calculation of the native meridian strip from the geographic longitude. › 0 Valid number of the required meridian strip. returnVal In case of an error the function returns FALSE, otherwise TRUE. Special features using NTv2 grid files Download of NTv2 files: The commonly used NTv2 files can be download from the KilletSoft-Website or can be purchased from suppliers of geoservices. Encrypted NTv2 files: To protect the rights of some authors that provide NTv2 files specifically for use with KilletSoft products, GeoDLL supports encrypted NTv2 files that can be download from the KilletSoft website. Polygonal Validity Scopes: The scope of a NTv2 file is by default defined by rectangular coordinate boxes. In order to be able to implement polygonal structures, e.g. such as national borders, the producer of a NTv2 file therein can specify a Polygonal Validity Scope. For this, outside of the poligonal validity located grid meshes are indicated by the exopolygonal entries -99/-99 in their shift or accuracy values. GeoDLL can check the grid meshes on exopolygonal entries and exclude hits from the calculation and comment them with an error message. The Polygonal Validity Check will be switched on or off using the function setntvpolyvalid(). Detailed information can be found in the help section "Polygonal Validity Scopes". Please take further references from the description of the function coordtrans(). Unlocking: This function is a component of the unlock requiring function group "Coordinate Transformations". It is unlocked for unrestricted use together with the other functions of the group by passing the unlock parameters, acquired from the software distribution company, trough the function setunlockcode(). Without unlocking only a few function calls for test purposes (shareware principle) are possible. Reference System Transitions with NTv2 grid files require an additional unlocking of the function group "NTv2 Grid Data". |
