# Cylinder

The observation cylinder may be defined as a closed cylinder (circular section) or only a cylindrical sector (arc section). The following parameters are required:

- Name to define the name of this type of observation points. The name must be different of the already defined ones.
- Base Center coordinates where the base of the cylinder will be placed (in the XY plane).
- Radius radius of the cylinder
- Height Coordinates to define the hight sampling rate of the
cylinder.
- Number of points define the number of samples to be generated along the height of the cylinder (in the Z axis).
- Height defines the total height of the cylinder.

- Angle Coordinates to define the circular sampling rate of the
cylinder.
- Number of points define the number of samples to be generated along the transversal section of the cylinder (in the XY plane).
- Initial angle angle where the first circular sample is generated in the transversal section, in degrees.
- Final angle angle where the last circular sample is generated in the transversal section, in degrees.
