Category


Calling Sequence


      ell_2pt_circle, p1, p2, ref, rd

Inputs


      p1, p2 = 2 given points. in
      ref = Reference point on circle center side. in
        Points are structures: {lon:lon, lat:lat}.
      rd = Radius of circle to fit (m). in

Keyword Parameters


Keywords


        CENTER=pc Returned circle center (point structure).
        /OPPOSITE means find circle with center on opposite side
          of geodesic p1 to p2 than ref point.
        /DEBUG Debug.
        NUM_ITERATIONS=cnt Returned # iterations.
        RAD2DIFF=r2d Difference of radius from p2 from rd (m).
        /BINARY use binary search method, else linear search.
