Plotting geodesic (great circle) lines

Hi

 

Please can anyone give me advice on how to plot geodesic (great circle) lines?

 

I'm aware I could use GeometryEngine::geodesicDensifyGeometry() to get points on a geodesic line between two predefined locations, but what I need to do is to plot a line using a starting location, angle of bearing and line length. I think perhaps GeometricEngine::createGeodesicSector() could do this for me but I'm not sure how to set all the parameters. I'd appreciate it if anyone who has experience doing this could give me some hints.

 

Thanks very much,

Sharon
