When I downloaded my copy of GeoTrans from the NGA website and installed
it, the documentation was in the "DOCS" subdirectory.
You can contact me directly and I'll e-mail the document to you. It is a
WORD document.

Please Sir,
Where do I find this documentation? It does not seems to be in
the library I downloaded.
Best regards,
Paul.
