SphericalCosLatDifferential

class astropy.coordinates.SphericalCosLatDifferential(d_lon_coslat, d_lat, d_distance, copy=True)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: astropy.coordinates.BaseSphericalCosLatDifferential

Differential(s) of points in 3D spherical coordinates.

Parameters:
d_lon_coslat, d_lat : Quantity

The differential longitude (with cos(lat) included) and latitude.

d_distance : Quantity

The differential distance.

copy : bool, optional

If True (default), arrays will be copied rather than referenced.

d_distance

Component ‘d_distance’ of the Differential.

d_lat

Component ‘d_lat’ of the Differential.

d_lon_coslat

Component ‘d_lon_coslat’ of the Differential.

Methods Documentation

classmethod from_representation(representation, base=None)[source] [edit on github]
represent_as(other_class, base=None)[source] [edit on github]

Convert coordinates to another representation.

If the instance is of the requested class, it is returned unmodified. By default, conversion is done via cartesian coordinates.

Parameters:
other_class : BaseRepresentation subclass

The type of representation to turn the coordinates into.

base : instance of self.base_representation, optional

Base relative to which the differentials are defined. If the other class is a differential representation, the base will be converted to its base_representation.
