LAT , LON and ALT in TCAS

Recommended Posts

Can somebody help me.

What is the proper expression for converting from the TCAS section

- float lat; // 32-bit float, in degrees, –ve = South

- float lon; // 32-bit float, in degrees, –ve = West

- float alt; // 32-bit float, in feet

(C++ or C#)

Thanks In Advance

I don't use C# but in C/C++ these are what they say -- type "float". You just read them into a variable defined as "float". This is why I defined them like this, to save you any conversion problems! It was different in the FS98 offsets areas, those units were feined by MS long before I started this stuff.
