new Cesium.RectangleOutlineGeometry(options)

A description of the outline of a a cartographic rectangle on an ellipsoid centered at the origin.
Name Type Description
options Object Object with the following properties:
Name Type Default Description
rectangle Rectangle A cartographic rectangle with north, south, east and west properties in radians.
ellipsoid Ellipsoid Ellipsoid.WGS84 optional The ellipsoid on which the rectangle lies.
granularity Number CesiumMath.RADIANS_PER_DEGREE optional The distance, in radians, between each latitude and longitude. Determines the number of positions in the buffer.
height Number 0.0 optional The distance in meters between the rectangle and the ellipsoid surface.
rotation Number 0.0 optional The rotation of the rectangle, in radians. A positive rotation is counter-clockwise.
extrudedHeight Number optional The distance in meters between the rectangle's extruded face and the ellipsoid surface.
