Topic: Placing a marker in the sky at a specified altitude / GPS
I know... not a usual question. But I'd like to place a prefab in the sky above the map (of course have it move with the map movement / zoom factor). Here are my specific questions:
How do I place the object in the 3D space? I have an AGL (above ground level) altitude in Meters, and GPS coordinates. Do I send the lon/lat/alt to a function in your API? If so, what is the function? If not, do I use the place marker to get the lon/lat, and then use something else to get the alt of the ground below my desired location and add my AGL altitude? If so, what format do I need to convert the meters to? Will I need to update this conversion based on zoom level?
I know... complex question, but I'm stuck... I'm very much hoping I can just send WGS83 lon/lat and meter alt to your script and plug that response into a transform or something. I was very hopeful when I saw the flying airplane in your demo video. Seems like that is exactly what I'm trying to do.
