Description

1) list of geocentric <> geodetic <> XYZ equations *

2) quick plots using them (3d poly globe)

3) wikipedia article summarizing the above

4) one equation is by author of this paper. shows that using (new) geometry observation, Heiskanen and Moritz or Ferrari equations were not necessary as the problem is not inheirently recursive as they suggested. (see article)
