regionmanager.setcoordinates - Function

1.1.2 Set new default Coordinate System


Description

This function allows you to (re)set the default Coordinate System used by the functions that make world regions. If you don’t specifiy a Coordinate System when you make the world region, the default Coordinate System, if there is one, is used. The Coordinate System is stored in a coordinates tool and is created with the coordsys tool function.

Normally, the world region creating functions like wbox and wpolygon will issue a message each time the private Coordinate System is used. However, if you set verbose=F then this will not occur.
