# azimuth_range_to_lat_lon¶

metpy.calc.azimuth_range_to_lat_lon(azimuths, ranges, center_lon, center_lat, geod=None)[source]

Convert azimuth and range locations in a polar coordinate system to lat/lon coordinates.

Pole refers to the origin of the coordinate system.

Parameters
• azimuths (array_like) – array of azimuths defining the grid. If not a pint.Quantity, assumed to be in degrees.

• ranges (array_like) – array of range distances from the pole. Typically in meters.

• center_lat (float) – The latitude of the pole in decimal degrees

• center_lon (float) – The longitude of the pole in decimal degrees

• geod (pyproj.Geod or None) – PyProj Geod to use for forward azimuth and distance calculations. If None, use a default spherical ellipsoid.

Returns

lon, lat (2D arrays of longitudes and latitudes corresponding to original locations)
