PURPOSE ^

Functions for handling geographical coordinate systems and reference

SYNOPSIS ^

This is a script file.

DESCRIPTION ^

 Functions for handling geographical coordinate systems and reference
 ellipsoids.

 If nothing else is stated:

 Latitudes range [-90,90] and longitudes [-180,180].

 Cartesian coordinates follow the Earth-centred earth-fixed (ECEF) system.
 That is, the X axis passes (lat,lon)=(0,0), Y axis (0,90) and Z axis
 (90,x).

 Reference ellipsoids are specified by the equatorial radius (r) and its
 eccentricity (e), as a vector of length two: ellipsoid = [r,e]
 (this fits the definition used in Matlab's mapping toolbox)

The local Line of sight angles are defined following 
 the EAST-NORTH-UP system:
         za    aa
         90    0   points towards north
         90    90  points towards east
         0     aa  points up
