                   SpiceDouble    lonc,
                   SpiceDouble    z,
                   SpiceDouble *  radius,
                   SpiceDouble *  lon,
                   SpiceDouble *  lat )

Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   r          I   Distance of point from z axis. 
   lonc       I   Cylindrical angle of point from XZ plane (radians). 
   z          I   Height of point above XY plane. 
   radius     O   Distance of point from origin. 
   lon        O   Longitude of point (radians). 
   lat        O   Latitude of point (radians). 

Detailed_Input

 
   r          Distance of the input point from z axis. 
 
   lonc       Cylindrical angle of the point from XZ plane (radians). 
 
   z          Height of the point above XY plane. 
 

Detailed_Output

 
   radius     Distance of the input point from origin. 
 
   lon        Longitude (i.e. angle from the XZ plane) of the input 
              point (radians). `lon' is set equal to `lonc'.
 
   lat        Latitude (i.e. angle above the XY plane) of the input 
              point (radians). The range of `lat' is [-pi, pi].

Particulars

 
   This routine converts coordinates given in cylindrical 
   coordinates to coordinates in latitudinal coordinates. 
 
   Latitudinal coordinates are the same coordinates as use for 
   the earth.  Latitude refers to angle above the equator, longitude 
   to angle east from a meridian, and radius to the distance from 
   an origin. 
 

Examples

 
   Below are two tables:  The first is a set of input values 
   the second is the result of the following sequence of 
   calls to Spicelib routines.  Note all input and output angular 
   quantities are in degrees. 
 
       convrt_c ( lonc , "DEGREES", "RADIANS", lonc  );

       cyllat_c ( r, lonc , z, &radius, &lon, &lat   );

       convrt_c ( lon,  "RADIANS", "DEGREES", lon    );
       convrt_c ( lat,  "RADIANS", "DEGREES", lat    );
 
 
   Inputs:                         Results:
