WGS_84

WGS_84

Name


      WGS_84

Purpose


      Return a structure with some WGS 84 Ellipsoid values.

Category


Calling Sequence


      s = wgs_84()

Inputs


Keyword Parameters


Keywords


        LAT=lat Specified latitude in degrees (def=0).
        /GEODETIC means given latitude is geodetic (def)).
        /GEOCENTRIC means given latitude is geocentric.

Outputs


      s = returned structure: out
        s.a = semi-major axis (m).
        s.b = semi-minor axis (thru N-S pole) (m).
        s.f1 = Reciprocal of flattening.
        s.lat0 = Geocentric latitude for returned radius (deg).
        s.lat1 = Geodetic latitude for returned radius (deg).
        s.r = Radius from center at given latitude (m).
        s.r_axis = Radius from rotation axis at given latitude (m).
        s.d2m_lat = Meters/deg of lat at given lat (m).
        s.d2m_lon = Meters/deg of lon at given lat (m).
