Re: Lat/Lon to Polar: Revisited

Azimuth is an angle (essentially the same as longitude according to
my understanding) so I would expect it to either increase or decrease

Hi Bill,

Aahhhh, you're right that Azimuth should increase (sorry about the confusion). My problem is that as I pass through North (from the radar perspective) I either go from 359.999 to 0 degrees, or 360.0 to 0.01 degrees. Hence the temporary (one gridpoint) decrease in Azimuth (see attached image). At the same time, my range will decrease from X = 0, to X = 516 and then increase from X = 517 to X = 1033. How would I work around that?

Thanks!
