- extends CoordinateSystem
A one-dimensional coordinate system used to record the heights (or depths) of points. Such a
coordinate system is usually dependent on the Earth's gravity field, perhaps loosely as when
atmospheric pressure is the basis for the vertical coordinate system axis. An exact definition
is deliberately not provided as the complexities of the subject fall outside the scope of this
VerticalCS shall have one axis association.
