nc:Orientation

A set of angles of rotation about the principle axes (normal, lateral, longitudinal) of a thing, relative to true north and the horizontal plane, measured in degrees.

nc:Orientation holds other objects.

nc:Orientation can hold any of these following objects, starting with the most specific and becoming more generic as you move down the list:


nc:Azimuth360Value

An orientation of something with respect to True North.

Holds numbers.


nc:AzimuthDecimalValue

An orientation of something with respect to True North.

Holds numbers.


cbrn:Azimuth180Value

An objects(i.e., instrument, detector, or item) orientation, with respect to True North. Its value is the angle subtended by a line from the center point of the object to True North in the horizontal plane and the line formed by the object's front-to-back axis projected onto the horizontal plane. The angle range is from "-180.0" to "+180.0" degrees. A value of zero implies the front of the object's body is pointed to True North; positive values imply the front is pointed to the east of True North; negative values imply the front is pointed to the west of True North.

Holds numbers.


nc:Inclination90PlusMinusValue

An angle of rotation of a thing about its lateral axis, measured in degrees between the longitudinal axis and the horizontal plane; negative values indicate a downward rotation.

Holds numbers.


nc:Inclination90Value

An orientation of an object with respect to the horizontal plane.

Holds numbers.


nc:InclinationDecimalValue

An orientation of an object with respect to the horizontal plane.

Holds numbers.


nc:RollValue

An angle of rotation of a thing about its longitudinal axis, measured in degrees between the lateral axis and the horizontal plane; negative values indicate the left side is rotated downward.

Holds numbers.
