Jord - Geographical Position Calculations

Jord [Swedish] is Earth [English]

What is this?

Jord is a Haskell library that implements various geographical position calculations using the algorithms described in Gade, K. (2010). A Non-singular Horizontal Position Representation.

• Transformation between ECEF (earth-centred, earth-fixed), Latitude/Longitude and N-Vector positions for spherical and ellipsoidal earth model
• Transformation between Latitude/Longitude and N-Vector positions
• Local, Body and North, East, Down Frames: delta between positions, target position from reference position and delta
• surface distance, initial & final bearing, interpolated position, great circle intersections, cross track distance, ...

How do I build it?

If you have Stack, then:

$stack build --test  How do I use it? See documentation on Hackage import Data.Geo.Jord -- Delta between positions in frameL let p1 = decimalLatLongHeight 1 2 (metres (-3)) let p2 = decimalLatLongHeight 4 5 (metres (-6)) let w = decimalDegrees 5 -- wander azimuth deltaBetween p1 p2 (frameL w) wgs84 -- = deltaMetres 359490.579 302818.523 17404.272 -- destination position from 531914N0014347W having travelled 500Nm on a heading of 96.0217° -- using mean earth radius derived from the WG84 ellipsoid destination (readLatLong "531914N0014347W") (decimalDegrees 96.0217) (nauticalMiles 500) r84 -- surface distance between 54°N,154°E and its antipodal position -- using mean earth radius derived from the WG84 ellipsoid let p = decimalLatLong 54 154 surfaceDistance p (antipode p) r84  Jord comes with a REPL (built with haskeline): $ jord-exe
