The waypoint list (waypts) of the route element has a type attribute, which can be local or global, depending on whether the waypoint locations are given in terms of a locally level map projection or global geodetic coordinates (latitude and longitude).
In this study, the mobile node first obtains the geodetic coordinates of the nodes and transforms them into geocentric coordinates from the geodetic coordinates.
Geodetic coordinates of each image projection centre are available.
All figures from 2 to 9 present geodetic coordinates time series from 2008 to 2010 which are residuals from the ETRF2000(R05).
The geographic position of an object is described by geodetic coordinates: B--geodetic latitude, L--geodetic longitude, and [H.sup.(g)]--geodetic height.
This study adopts the parameters of the international GRS-80 (Moritz 1992) ellipsoid both as a reference for the geodetic coordinates and as a generator of the normal gravity field.
