Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{VectorCalculus}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{GetCoordinates}\left(\right)$
 ${\mathrm{cartesian}}$ (1)
 > $v≔\mathrm{VectorField}\left(⟨r,0,0⟩,{'\mathrm{spherical}'}_{r,\mathrm{φ},\mathrm{θ}}\right)$
 > $\mathrm{GetCoordinates}\left(v\right)$
 ${{\mathrm{spherical}}}_{{r}{,}{\mathrm{\phi }}{,}{\mathrm{\theta }}}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{SetCoordinates}\left('\mathrm{polar}'\right)$
 ${\mathrm{polar}}$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{GetCoordinates}\left(⟨a,b⟩\right)$
 ${\mathrm{polar}}$ (4)
