wmm_location_t

Geographic location type This structure describes a spot on the Earth with respect to a reference ellipsoid.

Synopsis:

typedef struct  {
    double latitude_deg ;
    double longitude_deg ;
    double altitude_meters ;
}wmm_location_t;

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Data:

double latitude_deg
Degrees north of equator (Geodetic) [-90,90].
double longitude_deg
Degrees east of IERS Reference Meridian [-180,180].
double altitude_meters
Meters above earth reference ellipsoid.

Library:

libwmm (For the qcc command, use the -l wmm option to link against this library)
