Dear community member,
I have been experimenting with the Position.TranslateTo(position, angle, distance) method, and have found that the distance is often wrong.
For example:
 Longitude(43.862714)
 Latitude(79.387035)
 angle/bearing = 0 degrees
 distance = 10 km
Result:
 the translated value is East of the reference point (expected: due north)
 the translated value (according to google maps) is 7.16km away (expected 10km)
Clearly I am doing something wrong.
Thoughts?



Although this is not related to my problem, others should know that:
"The trigonometric formula used for this method is subject to errors when the distance to translate falls below a quarter mile (approximately 433 meters)."

Found the problem: I was using a couple of applications to confirm the location of the GIS coordinates. Unfortunately the latitude/longitude order differs depending on which application you are using.
