Advanced Geodetic Computation in Mathematica
GeometricalGeodesy implements everything necessary for
fundamental geodesy and analytical cartography. It computes
coordinates in various data and coordinate systems, contains
algorithms for classical forward and inverse problems, and enables
computations with the extended Newton-Raphson, Robbins, and Vincenty
methods. A large selection of reference ellipsoids and geodetic data
is provided, which can be user-supplemented.
- Units section defines many linear and angular units.
- Contains many geodetic reference ellipsoids used in surveying
- Can use input projections to implement the Universal
Transverse Mercator and State Plane Coordinate systems.
- Provides a standard geometrical geodesy core, allowing a broad
range of advanced computations.
