cartesian_to_spherical(x, y, z)¶
Converts 3D rectangular cartesian coordinates to spherical polar coordinates.
Note that the resulting angles are latitude/longitude or elevation/azimuthal form. I.e., the origin is along the equator rather than at the north pole.
This function simply wraps functionality provided by the
SphericalRepresentationclasses. In general, for both performance and readability, we suggest using these classes directly. But for situations where a quick one-off conversion makes sense, this function is provided.
