    On such a short distance, all methods (rumbline, great circle) compute
    nearly the same distance and bearing from point A (the bost) to point B
    (Rijksmuseum)
    
    >The boat is located at +52.371987 lat, +4.882612 long
    >The Rijksmuseum at +52.362108 lat, +4.883987 long
    >The distance from the boat to the Rijksmusem is calculated as 0.68456 km
    
    Correct calculated distance is 1.10171km
    
    >The bearing from the boat to the Rijksmuseum is calculated as 175.13 deg
    
    Correct calculated bearing is 175.14234
