GeoHemisphereBoundary

GeoHemisphereBoundary[]
is a one-dimensional GeoGraphics primitive that represents the boundary line of a hemisphere of the Earth centered at the current geo location.

GeoHemisphereBoundary[loc]
represents the boundary line of a hemisphere centered at the location loc.

DetailsDetails

  • The boundary of a hemisphere is a line contained on a plane that goes through the center of the Earth. Hence this line is a great ellipse.
  • The location loc can be specified as latitude and longitude coordinates in degrees, as GeoPosition[{lat, lon}], or as named entities Entity[].
