View Coordinate System

Change the View Coordinate System to display HUD information in different coordinate systems.

A CityEngine scene with a Scene Coordinate System displays information in the 3D viewport headup display in the current Scene Coordinate System:

After changing the View Coordinate System, the headup display shows the coordinates in the chosen Coordinate System, as well as the View Coordinate System. Note that the status line still displays the Scene Coordinate System, which remains unchanged.
