Julia port of Charles F. F. Karney's GeographicLib.
GeographicLib allows you to accurately compute properties of geodesics on a flattened sphere (e.g., Earth).
For full details of using the package, see the latest documentation.
To perform some of its tests, the package relies on the Python port of GeographicLib.
Hence if you do
pkg> test, PyCall will attempt to import
install it if possible.
You may also run
julia script/test_GeodTest.jl which compares the output of this
package and the routines in
libproj to a set of test results computed with
high precision. For this purpose, you need to have
Proj installed and will need to edit the script
to point to the location of the
Neither of these tests are necessary to use GeographicLib.jl normally.
