Solutions of Inverse Geodetic Problem in Navigational Applications
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: Solutions of such navigational problems as an orthodromic navigation (courses, distances and intermediate points), maximum latitude and a composite navigation with limited latitude as well as, for comparison, a loxodromic navigation (courses, distances) without any simplifications for a sphere, by an application of solutions of the inverse geodetic problem are presented. An exemplary rigorous, rapid, non-iterative solution of the inverse geodetic problem according to Sodano, for any length of geodesic, is attached.
