Coordinate Systems

Coordinate system is a system for assigning an n-tuple of numbers or scalars to each point in an n-dimensional space. It anchors the regions within the real world. Coordinate system can have different types such as:

  • Rectangular cartesian
  • Cylindrical polar
  • Spherical polar
  • Prolate spheroidal
  • Oblate spheroidal

There is a global (world) coordinate system aligned with 3D rectangular cartesian space.

Coordinate system has the following attributes:

  • User number
  • Finished tag
  • Type
  • Number of dimensions
  • Focus (for prolate-spheriodal system only)
  • Origins
  • Orientation
