COMPUTATIONS ON THE SPHEROID

2
Learning Objectives Calculate and of a point given and s from a point with known and. Calculate and s between points with known and.

3
Lecture Outline n Direct Problem –Manual –Spreadsheets n Reverse Problem –Manual –Spreadsheets n Conclusion

4
Direct Problem n Know 1, 1, 1 2 and s 1 2 n Need to calculate 2 and 2 n Many formula available –Different accuracy and applications –Manual calculations –Spreadsheets

5
Tangent - Direct and known known s known and unknown

6
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 1 –Draw a diagram –Compute for known point –Compute approximate using –Compute m and known mm

7
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 2 –Compute m using m –Compute approximate and known m mm

8
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 3 –Compute approximate ½ using formula and known mm ½

9
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 4 –Compute approximate + ½ –Check diagram for correct sense –Compute m mm ½ mm + ½ 1-2 known

10
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 5 –Compute ½ –Compute m ½ mm

11
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 6 –Compute m and m using this new m –Compute ½ mm m mm ½½

12
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 7 –Compute ½ ½½ mm ½ ½ m mm

13
Process – Tangent Direct n Step 8 –Compare earlier results and decide on further iterations (from step 4) –Calculate final 1-2 + ½ –Calculate final 2-1 = 1-2 + ± 180° and known ½½ ½ Calculate and ½ + ½ 2-1

14
Spreadsheet - Direct

16
Reverse Problem n Know 1, 1, 2 and 2 n Need to calculate 1 2, 2 1 and s n Again, many formula available n Best explained with an example

17
Tangent - Reverse - Formula

18
Tangent - Reverse - Example

24
Spreadsheet - Reverse

26
Conclusion You can now: Calculate and of a point given and s from a point with known and. Calculate and s between points with known and.
