Projicering af et waypoint

To project actuallly means to 'cast' one point to another point.

Projection of a waypoint is related to a certain starting point - eg. another waypoint - and results in a new waypoint in a certain direction and in a certain distance from the starting point.

So three pieces of information are needed to be able to project: A starting point, a direction and a distance.
