PlaneAltitudeEvaluator Interface

Interface so various plane representations can be used by algorithms that just want altitude evaluations.

Specific implementors are

  • Plane3dByOriginAndUnitNormal
  • Point4d (used for homogeneous plane coefficients)

Methods

Name Description
altitude(point: Point3d): number Return the altitude of the point from the plane.  
velocity(vector: Vector3d): number Return the derivative of altitude wrt motion along a vector.  
velocityXYZ(x: number, y: number, z: number): number Return the derivative of altitude wrt motion along a vector given by components  
weightedAltitude(point: Point4d): number Return the weighted altitude
