In satellite geodesy the position of a point P is usually determined by computing its coordinate vector x with respect to an earth-fixed Cartesian coordinate system S. S is chosen such that a rotational ellipsoid E, closely approximating the surface of the earth, has normal form with respect to S. Since the geodetic coordinates of P with respect to E (ellipsoidal latitude ϕ, ellipsoidal longitude λ, and ellipsoidal height h) describe the location of P with respect to the surface of the earth much better than x, a frequently appearing problem is to compute ϕ, λ, and h from x.
