Valid Input Values:

vars tables have the following recognized fields( required entries in blue, optional in green):

 vars = 
 units = UnitNameTable units, 
 radius = number radius, 
 heading/headingDegrees = number/number heading/headingDegrees, 
 ref = table ref,
 metric = boolean metric, 
 alt = boolean alt,

units is a UnitNameTable- a table of unit names that follow a special set of rules (see the entry on UnitNameTables).

radius is the radius of units to be considered.

heading/headingDegrees heading or headingDegrees define the orientation units must be heading in to be considered. heading is measured in radians. headingDegrees is measured in degrees

ref is the reference point from which the will be used to form the Bearing Range callout

metric boolean value if present will display the distance and altitude in the metric system. If not present distance will be Nautical Miles and Altitude will be in feet

alt boolean value of present will display the altitude making the string into a "Bearing Range Altitude" callout.
