The predominant view, if not concensus, is to forget the ECEF and stick with
geocentric [cartesian] coordinates and that is how I will identify my
software and documentation.
A second issue arose and is the preferred or official designation of lat-lon-h
coordinates. Is geographic or geodetic preferred? I have a tendency to use
the two designations interchageably and mix them freely in emails and
Anyone want to nit-pick over this usage. :-)
The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
