I'm currently implementing 3DTiles into my java application. I know that I will only work with the region BoundingVolume. The BoundingVolume has 6 values: west, south, east, north, minHeight and maxHeight. Min and maxHeight are in meters above the WGS 84 ellipsoid and the other values are given in WGS 84 datum as defined in EPSG 4979 and are in radians. So far so good.
Now my problem is the next step. I am personally working with Point Clouds, so I read in a .pnts file and obtain the position data for every point that is in the Point Cloud. I get x,y and z values. I think the z values are in meters again but I don't know how to use the x and y values. If I try to convert them from radians to degree the values are not correct. I also get the values of an
RTC_Center which has 3 values. I guess they are x,y and z but I also don't know how to work with these. I want to display them on a globe and need them as Latitude and Longitude(atleast I think so).
So my question is: how do I work with the obtained position values if I need them as Latitude and Longitude. I have the feeling the
RTC_CENTER is important but I don't know for what.
I will leave some links to the 3DTiles specifications that I think will help.
