Gets the CoordinateSystem, WGS 1984, used when displaying the Map in 3D mode.

public CoordinateSystem CoordinateSystem3D { get; }

Public ReadOnly Property CoordinateSystem3D As CoordinateSystem

Field Value

The CoordinateSystem used by the 3D mode.


This property indicates the CoordinateSystem used to display the map in 3D DisplayMode, and is read-only as the 3D display mode is limited to use the WGS 1984 geographic coordinate system. The CurrentCoordinateSystem property provides a shortcut to this property if the map is in 3D mode.

The MapDisplay has separate coordinate systems for displaying the map in 2D or 3D DisplayMode. Note that you can change the CoordinateSystem2D used by the 2D display mode.

If MapItems in the Map have spatial data with a different CoordinateSystem to that of the MapDisplay, then the items will be automatically reprojected into the CoordinateSystem of the display.

Geographic transformations can be used to increase the accuracy of data reprojection; see the GeographicTransformation class for more information.
