Reading between the lines it sounds like maybe you want to extract heading (aka yaw) and elevation (aka pitch) values from your direction vector.


If your reading is correct, I would say heading is "longitude" and elevation is "latitude", and what he needs is a conversion from Cartesian to spherical coordinates. That happens to have the exact same equations you posted.
