Geographic coordinate utilities using WGS84 datum

## Installation

```
$ npm install wgs84-util
```

## Methods

```
distanceBetween(pointA, pointB [, bearings ])
```

Calculate the distance between a set of GeoJSON points in meters

Uses Vincenty inverse calculation

Adapted from http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong-vincenty.html

Parameters

pointA:object, GeoJSON point

pointB:object, GeoJSON point

bearings:boolean, optional switch for including the bearings in degrees

Returns

number | object, distance from this point to the supplied point in meters or an object that includes distance, initial and final bearings

throws:Error, if formula failed to converge

```
bearingsBetween(pointA, pointB)
```

Convenience function for returning only the initial and final bearings between the given coordinates (forward azimuths at each point)

Parameters

pointA:object, GeoJSON point

pointB:object, GeoJSON point

Returns

object, forward azimuths (initial and final bearings) at each point in degrees

```
destination(point, bearing, distance)
```

Calculate the destination point from this point having travelled the given distance in meters on the given initial bearing

Uses Vincenty direct calculation

Adapted from http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong-vincenty.html

Parameters

point:object, GeoJSON point

bearing:number, initial bearing in degrees from north

distance:number, distance along bearing in meters

Returns

object, GeoJSON destination point, finalBearing

throws:Error, if formula failed to converge

```
degToRad(deg)
```

Conversion from degrees to radians

Parameters

deg:number, angle in degrees

Returns

number, angle in radians

```
radToDeg(rad)
```

Conversion from radians to degrees

Parameters

rad:number, angle in radians

Returns

number, angle in degrees

```
LLtoUTM(ll)
```

Converts a set of Longitude and Latitude coordinates to UTM using the WGS84 ellipsoid.

Parameters

ll:object, GeoJSON point representing the coordinate to be converted

Returns

object, GeoJSON feature containing the UTM value with easting, northing, zoneNumber and zoneLetter properties, and an optional accuracy property in digits. Returns null if the conversion failed.

```
UTMtoLL(utm)
```

Converts UTM coordinates to lat/long, using the WGS84 ellipsoid

Parameters

utm:object, with northing, easting, zoneNumber and zoneLetter properties. If an optional accuracy property is provided (in meters), a bounding box will be returned instead of latitude and longitude.

Returns

object, GeoJSON object containing either lat and lon values (if no accuracy was provided), or top, right, bottom and left values for the bounding box calculated according to the provided accuracy. Returns null if the conversion failed.
