2007 (English)In: Observing our Changing Earth: Proceedings of the 2007 IAG General Assembly, Perugia, Italy, July 2 - 13, 2007 / [ed] Sideris, MG, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2007, 781-784 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
New solutions are provided to the direct and indirect geodetic problems on the ellipsoid. In addition, the area under the geodesic and the problem of intersection of geodesics are treated.
Each solution is composed of a strict solution for the sphere plus a small correction to account for the eccentricity of the ellipsoid. The correction is conveniently determined by numerical integration.
