### LL_ARC_AZIMUTH_KPB

LL_ARC_AZIMUTH_KPB

## Name

LL_ARC_AZIMUTH_KPB

## Purpose

This procedure returns the longitudes and latitudes (x1 and y1) of points located at
specified arc distances (arc_dist) and azimuths (az) from a set of initial points (x0 and y0).
By default coordinates are assumed to be in degrees.
This program is based on the IDL library function LL_ARC_DISTANCE, which is

## Category

Mapping, geography.

## Calling Sequence

LL_ARC_AZIMUTH_KPB, x0, y0, arc_dist, az, x1, y1

## Inputs

x0 : longitudes of initial points.
y0 : latitudes of initial points.
arc_dist : arc distances from (x0,y0).
az : azimuths from (x0,y0).

## Keyword Parameters

RADIANS : If set, inputs and outputs are in radians, otherwise degrees.

## Outputs

x1 : longitudes of final points.
y1 : latitudes of final points.

## Procedure

Formula from Map Projections - a working manual. USGS paper
1395. Equations (5-5) and (5-6).

## Example

IDL> LL_ARC_AZIMUTH_KPB, 0.0, 30.0, 10.0, 45.0, x1, y1
PRINT, x1, y1
2.91415
-0.622235

## Modification History

Kenneth P. Bowman, April, 2010. Modified from LL_ARC_DISTANCE to vectorize the calculations.
Note that in this procedure the longitude and latitude are input as two separate arguments,
and the output values are returned through the argument list, rather than via a function call.
Also, for consistency with ARC_AZIMTUH_KPB, angles are assumed to be in degrees, not radians.
