EllipsoidComputeApproximateHeight Method

Compute an approximate value of the height above the surface.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Geometry.Shapes
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 19.5.402.0 (19.5.402.0)
Syntax
public double ComputeApproximateHeight(
	Cartesian position
)

Parameters

position
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The position in the fixed frame of the shape.

Return Value

Type: Double
The approximate height above the surface.
Remarks
In general, for Oblate Spheroids, this will be faster than calling CartesianToCartographic(Cartesian) while providing a height which is still extremely close to the true value.
