Re: Question global coordinates of physical volume (Richard Thompson)
Date: 14 Apr, 2005
From: Richard Thompson <Richard Thompson>

To clarify, I want physical volume global coordinates at the end (or beginning) of a run, not during tracking. There are plenty of examples of how to get global coordinates from G4Steps using touchables, but I want this information after tracking is complete.

There was a suggestion of how to do this by traversing physical volumes and adding up their translations: http://geant4-hn.slac.stanford.edu:5090/HyperNews/public/get/geometry/106.html , but perhaps the G4VPhysicalVolume* G4VPhysicalVolume::GetMother() method has been removed since that posting?

Thanks in advance.
