OARIS11 — Name "wgs84_velocity_type" is misleading

  • Key: OARIS11-12
  • Status: open  
  • Source: BAE SYSTEMS ( Peter Hammond)
  • Summary:

    The name suggests something like degrees latitude per second, degrees longitude per second; probably a usable unit but not one I have ever come across. It was certainly not where I looked when looking for course and speed. I did look at polar_velocity_type, found it was wrong and used cartesian intead, which was not what my subscriber was expecting.

    Admittedly it is obvious once one finally drills down to the definiton of wgs84_velocity_type, but experience shows that at least this developer did not search that far.
