Either use the vtkworldpointpicker or after you get your coordinate you can
use vtkCoordinate class to convert it which ever coordinate you want

Subject: [vtkusers] model vs. world coordinates

do you know of a way to get the world coordinates of an object in VTK.
I am using the function actor->GETPOINTS->GETPOINT(a, x[3]) but it
returns the coordinates in the model coordinate system. Do you know how
I can get the coordinates in the world coordinate system?
Please help if you know!!!
