The phi angle (*φ*) is the angle from the positive
*y*-axis to the vector’s orthogonal projection onto the
*yz* plane. The angle is positive toward the positive
*z*-axis. The phi angle is between 0 and 360 degrees. The theta angle
(*θ*) is the angle from the *x*-axis to the vector
itself. The angle is positive toward the *yz* plane. The theta angle is
between 0 and 180 degrees.

The figure illustrates phi and theta for a vector that appears as a green solid
line.

The coordinate transformations between φ/θ and *az/el* are described by
the following equations

This transformation applies when `RotAx`

is
`true`
