Convert ADV from Beam to XYZ Coordinates


Convert ADV velocity components from a beam-based coordinate system to a xyz-based coordinate system.


beamToXyzAdv(x, debug = getOption("oceDebug"))



an adv object.


a flag that, if non-zero, turns on debugging. Higher values yield more extensive debugging.


The coordinate transformation is done using the transformation matrix contained in transformation.matrix in the metadata slot, which is normally inferred from the header in the binary file. If there is no such matrix (e.g. if the data were streamed through a data logger that did not capture the header), beamToXyzAdv the user will need to store one in x, e.g. by doing something like the following:

x[["transformation.matrix"]] <- rbind(c(11100, -5771, -5321),
                                      c( #' 291, 9716, -10002),
                                      c( 1409, 1409, 1409)) / 4096
