    Hi Andrés,

    May be you can add in your synoptic diagram:

    - Georges Boissaye du Bocage method (Universal circle, 1682), which is tied to stereographic projection (but did not use complex algebra !)

    http://data.bnf.fr/15317695/georges_boissaye_du_bocage/#rdt70-15317695

    - Pierre Semirot method (1961), which is a mechanical one 

    "Navigation aérienne et nautique : nouvelle méthode de calcul", Journal des Observateurs, Vol 44 1961

    - and what about the "astrograph" ?

    I can't do more now, because Paris attack consequences are catching my attention.
