I'm trying to include support for a custom coordinate system (SCH – Spherical Cross-track Height) used in radar image processing. The coordinate transform from (SCH) to geodetic / geocentric coordinates is hard to accomplish easily using the current mechanisms available in proj.4 . I would suggest extending the API to include fwd3d and inv3d functions. Presence of these functions can be checked for in pj_transform and in their absence one can seamlessly fall back on the exist fwd / inv functions. Introduction of these new functions will not affect the widely used API and will help make a case for using PROJ.4 / GDAL in public domain radar imaging software.
I have a proof of concept working on a github fork :
Any recommendations / suggestions are welcome.
