Determine if coordinates within current mapview zoomlevel?


I have a question concerning latitudedelta and longitudedelta of Titanium.Map.Mapview.location? What units are those parameters? Are these the same as the lat and long? I would like to find out if a certain coordinate is within the current view (=the deltas).

Example: My current position is


if I wanted to find out if

target_latitude: 45.06000
target_longitude: 9.06000

is within the current view with the above parameters how would I calculate this? Just for the latitude data I would assume this:

if (current_latitude + latitudedelta - target_latitude <= 0 || current_latitude - latitudedelta - target_latitude >= 0) {
 // true, within view's zoomlevel
} else {
 // false, outside of current view's zoomlevel

so in my above case of target_longitude and target_latitude this would return false?

And: Why are there two deltas? In all examples I looked at they seemed to be always identical.

Thanks for your help!

Regards, Felix
