If DMS is not present the format will be in Degrees Minutes Thousandths of Minutes.
Syntax
string mist.getLeadingLLString(table vars )
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, 
 acc = number acc,
 DMS = boolean DMS,
 }

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

acc is the accuracy which the Latitude/Longitude format will be displayed at.

DMS boolean value if present will display coordinate in Degrees Minutes Seconds. If not present the format will be in Degrees Minutes Thousandths of Minutes.

Return value:
string
Return example:
vec3
