GeoCoordinate Class

Represents a geographical location that is determined by latitude and longitude coordinates. May also include altitude, accuracy, speed, and course information.


Namespace:  System.Device.Location
Assembly:  System.Device (in System.Device.dll)

public class GeoCoordinate : IEquatable<GeoCoordinate>

The GeoCoordinate type exposes the following members.

Public methodGeoCoordinate()Initializes a new instance of GeoCoordinate that has no data fields set.
Public methodGeoCoordinate(Double, Double)Initializes a new instance of the GeoCoordinate class from latitude and longitude data.
Public methodGeoCoordinate(Double, Double, Double)Initializes a new instance of the GeoCoordinate class from latitude, longitude, and altitude data.
Public methodGeoCoordinate(Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double)Initializes a new instance of the GeoCoordinate class from latitude, longitude, altitude, horizontal accuracy, vertical accuracy, speed, and course.

Public propertyAltitudeGets the altitude of the GeoCoordinate, in meters.
Public propertyCourseGets or sets the heading in degrees, relative to true north.
Public propertyHorizontalAccuracyGets or sets the accuracy of the latitude and longitude that is given by the GeoCoordinate, in meters.
Public propertyIsUnknownGets a value that indicates whether the GeoCoordinate does not contain latitude or longitude data.
Public propertyLatitudeGets or sets the latitude of the GeoCoordinate.
Public propertyLongitudeGets or sets the longitude of the GeoCoordinate.
Public propertySpeedGets or sets the speed in meters per second.
Public propertyVerticalAccuracyGets or sets the accuracy of the altitude given by the GeoCoordinate, in meters.

Public methodEquals(GeoCoordinate)Determines if the GeoCoordinate object is equivalent to the parameter, based solely on latitude and longitude.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines if a specified GeoCoordinate is equal to the current GeoCoordinate, based solely on latitude and longitude. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetDistanceToReturns the distance between the latitude and longitude coordinates that are specified by this GeoCoordinate and another specified GeoCoordinate.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for the GeoCoordinate. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that contains the latitude and longitude. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Public operatorStatic memberEqualityDetermines whether two GeoCoordinate objects refer to the same location.
Public operatorStatic memberInequalityDetermines whether two GeoCoordinate objects correspond to different locations.

Public fieldStatic memberUnknownRepresents a GeoCoordinate object that has unknown latitude and longitude fields.
