    Geodesic Data
    From: Gaston Petrocelli
    Date: 2002 Oct 24, 14:23 +0900

    Hello everyone,
    My name is Gaston Petrocelli and I'm a 3rd. deck officer from the uruguayan
    merchant marine currently taking a post graduate course at the Marine
    Technical College in Kobe, Japan. I just found this mailing list yesterday
    and have had a lot of fun while reading you... it's amazing how easy one
    can forget about classical navigation when modern gadgets do all the work
    for us. I hope to take advantage of all your knowledge and make some
    contributions as well.
    I have a request now, I have to prepare a program to calculate difference
    of meridional parts under different geodesic systems to present as
    "homework". The problem is that I haven't been able to access reliable
    constants to use on my calculations. If anybody knows where I can find them
    online I'd appreciate it greatly. I'm in need of the following Equatorial
    and Polar Radius: by Bessel, Clark, Hayword, Krasovsky and L. A. U..
    Thank you very much in advance and hope to hear from you soon.
    Gaston Petrocelli
    Merchant Marine Officer
