Roll, Pitch, Yaw, ST_Rotate

Thinking out load (and hoping I’m right), but with the classic flight dynamics of roll, pitch, yaw for flight dynamics relative to PostGIS concepts of rotation:

  • Pitch Axis = ST_RotateX
  • Bearing (instead of yaw) = ST_RotateZ using 90-minus the angle for NSEW coordinates from Cartesian angles
  • Roll = ST_RotateY
