This should display the value of the world coordinates of the left mouse click.

Currently the values are incorrect.

Download and Build ClickWorldCoordinates

Click here to download ClickWorldCoordinates. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball ClickWorldCoordinates.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ClickWorldCoordinates/build 
  • If VTK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:
cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ClickWorldCoordinates

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
