As long as people are asking about the term ECEF, I would like to fix
the definition of ECEF on the Wikipedia page
but first I want to make sure I'm not wrong. Since every high-school
student in the world relies on Wikipedia, it would be good for it to
be close to right.
The definition says "The z-axis is defined as being parallel to the
earth rotational axes, pointing towards north". Isn't it actually
coincident with the rotational axis, rather than being parallel?
I just created a discussion page under the definition so the world at
large could comment.
