ELL_GEO_MINDIST_PT

Name


      ELL_GEO_MINDIST_PT

Purpose


      Find the point on the given geodesic closest to a given point.

Category


Calling Sequence


      ell_geo_mindist_pt, p1, p2, pt

Inputs


      p1, p2 = Start and end point on a geodesic. in
      pt = A reference point not on the geodesic. in
        All points are structures: {lon:lon, lat:lat}.

Keyword Parameters


Keywords


        OUT=pmin The closest point on the geodesic to point pt.
          If pmin is not between p1 and p2 it is set to the
          closer of p1 or p2 and flag will be 1 or 2.
        DIST=d Distance (m) from pmin to pt.
        AZI=[a1,a2] a1=azimuth from pmin to pt,
                      a2=azimuth from pt to pmin.
        FLAG=flag 0=closest point is between p1 and p2,
                  1=closest point is p1,
                  2=closest point is p2.
                  3=search not bounded by p1 and p2.
        /UNBOUND Do not bound solution between p1 and p2.
        /DEBUG Debug.
