public final class EarthGravitationalModel extends VerticalTransform
This class is an adaption of Fortran code
from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and available in public
domain. The normalized geopotential coefficients file bundled in this module is an
file, with some spaces trimmed.

Returns the parameter descriptors for this math transform.
Returns the parameters for this math transform.
Returns the value to add to a height above the ellipsoid in order to get a height above the geoid for the specified geographic coordinate.
Loads the coefficients from the specified ASCII file and initialize the internal clenshaw arrays.

Note: ASCII may looks like an unefficient format for binary distribution.
A binary file with coefficient values read by
DataInput.readDouble() would be
more compact than an uncompressed ASCII file. However, binary files are hard to
compress by the ZIP algorithm. Our experience show that a 675 kb uncompressed ASCII file is
only 222 kb after ZIP or JAR compression. The same data as a binary file is 257 kb
uncompressed and 248 kb compressed. So surprisingly, the ASCII file is more compact than the
binary file after compression. Since it is the primary format provided by the Earth-Info web
site, we use it directly in order to avoid a multiplication of formats.
filename- The filename (e.g.
"WGS84.cof", relative to this class directory.
IOException- if the file can't be read or has an invalid content.
public double heightOffset(double longitude, double latitude, double height) throws TransformException
longitude- The geodetic longitude, in decimal degrees.
latitude- The geodetic latitude, in decimal degrees.
height- The height above the ellipsoid in metres.
TransformException- if the offset can't be computed for the specified coordinates.
