Given the location (in latitude,longitude) of a target, return the rays that correspond to radar column above the target.

  • radar (Radar Object) – Py-ART Radar Object from which distance to the target, along with gates above the target, will be calculated.

  • azimuth (float,int) – forward azimuth angle from radar to target in degrees.
