GeoPositionXYZ

 GeoPositionXYZ[{x, y, z}] represents a position in a Cartesian geocentric coordinate system. GeoPositionXYZ[{x, y, z}, datum]represents a point referred to the specified datum.
• Coordinate values are assumed to be in meters.
• If no datum is specified, GeoPositionXYZ refers to the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2000.
• Typical values for datum specifications include "ITRF00", "NAD83CORS96", and "WGS84".
• GeoPositionXYZ coordinates are assumed to have a time coordinate equal to the reference epoch date of the datum.
• GeoPositionXYZ[{x, y, z, t}] includes a time, given as a date t in decimal years.
• GeoPositionXYZ[GeoPositionXYZ[{x, y, z}, datum1], datum2] converts between datums.
