Properties & Relations  (3)

Take a GeoPosition object:

Latitude returns the latitude of that location as a Quantity object:

The "Latitude" property of GeoPosition objects returns a numeric result in degrees:

The presence of elevation or temporal data does not affect the value of latitude:

Latitude returns geodetic latitude with respect to a reference datum ellipsoid:
