Geodesy

The Wolfram Language provides state-of-the-art high-precision geodesy computation, supporting all standard datums and projections.

DMS etc. Conversions

FromDMS convert from degrees, minutes, and seconds to decimal degrees

DMSString, DMSList convert from decimal degrees to degrees-minutes-seconds form

Latitude, Longitude, LatitudeLongitude extract latitude, longitude

Degree (°) conversion factor from radians to degrees (entered as deg)

Geodetic Points & Coordinate Systems

GeoPosition geodetic position specified by latitude and longitude

GeoPositionXYZ  ▪  GeoPositionENU

GeoGridPosition projected position in a cartographic grid

GeoAntipode antipode of a geodetic location

RandomGeoPosition generate pseudorandom geo positions in a region

Geodetic Vectors & Vector Frames

GeoVector geodetic vector specified by modulus and direction

GeoVectorXYZ  ▪  GeoVectorENU

GeoGridVector vector specified by components in the projected coordinates frame

Geodetic Paths & Measures

GeoDistance distance between geodetic positions

GeoDirection azimuthal direction between geodetic positions

GeoDestination position at a given distance and direction from a point

GeoDisplacement symbolic representation of a geodetic direction and distance

GeoLength length of a geodetic path

GeoArea area of a geodetic region

GeoDistanceList successive pairwise distances between a list of geodetic positions

Geodetic Projections

GeodesyData data on reference ellipsoids and geodetic datums

GeoProjectionData data on cartographic projections

Projection Scale & Distortion

GeoGridUnitDistance local geo distance corresponding to a unit of map distance
