    Re: Interpolation of Meridional Part Table

    Bowditch says elipticity e=sqrt (2f-f**2). And as you've mentioned : it depends on the model used. At least in Bowditch-1968 all the constants in meridional part calculations are based on Clarke spheroid 1866.

    No, the only independent variables are: a and f. And depens on the Earth model: sphere, ellipsoid or geoid
    Axes: a, b
    Flattening: f=1-b/a
    eccentricity e = sqrt(2*f-SQ(f))

    Yes, and therefore, the value of e is different in Earle formula and in Bowditc
