ToSphericalCoordinates[pt] is a special case of CoordinateTransform:

ToSphericalCoordinates inverts FromSphericalCoordinates:

ToSphericalCoordinates[{x,y,z}] uses spherical coordinates about the axis:

ToPolarCoordinates[{x,y,z}] uses spherical coordinates about the axis:

The spherical coordinates used by ToPolarCoordinates generalize to higher dimensions:

ToSphericalCoordinates changes the coordinate values of points:

TransformedField changes the coordinate expressions for fields:
