Name Type Description
_ptg TGIS_Point observer's location in geographic coordinate system expressed in radians
_local_time TDateTime observer's local time
_utc_offset Double time difference in hours between UTC and local time for a particular place and date; Daylight Saving Time must be taken into account.
