How i will draw circle around specific point in 3D model

2 ビュー (過去 30 日間)
I have this function creating 3d model of the Earth
load EARTH_MAP.mat
a = 6378137; % Horizontial radius
b = 6356752.31424518; % Vertical radius
th=repmat((0:.25:180)'*pi/180,[1 1441]);
ph=repmat((-180:.25:180)*pi/180,[721 1]);
s.children(1).properties.XData = a*sin(th).*cos(ph);
s.children(1).properties.YData = a*sin(th).*sin(ph);
s.children(1).properties.ZData = b*cos(th);
s.children(1).properties.CData = double(c)/255;
if strcmp(GRID,'on')== 1
for n=6:8
s.children(n).properties.XData = a*s.children(n).properties.XData;
s.children(n).properties.YData = a*s.children(n).properties.YData;
s.children(n).properties.ZData = b*s.children(n).properties.ZData;
axis equal
axis vis3d
set(gcf,'Position', [0 0 1024 1024]);
on second program I callback that function
EARTH_SPHERE([1 1 1],'on');
and I would like to create a circle on surface around certain point with specified by me radius
Something like that:

Hi Radoslaw,
There are a couple of similar questions that answer your question. Here is a link as to how to plot circles.
I am also wondering if you need to account for the curvature, if so it should be possiable to draw the circle first and then project it onto "EARTH_SPHERE" again i'm not sure if you require this or not.

Hi Rasoslaw,
Appologies I didn't see your reply sooner. Without considering the curvature you would get a perfect circle, considering the curvature I imagine the shape would be slightly more oval shaped. Whether to consider this curvature completly depends what you need. Let me know if you got the convetional circle in okay and if that does what you need it too. If not we can have a think about the sphere projection.
