Workspace Method rte_poslosFromGeodetic


Converts sensor position and LOS from geodetic to geocentric values.

Works exactly as sensor_poslosFromGeodetic but places the output
in rte_pos and rte_los. Accordingly, the input can only cover
one combination of position and LOS.

OUTrte_pos(Vector)A geographical position for starting radiative transfer calculations.
OUTrte_los(Vector)A line-of-sight for (complete) radiative transfer calculations.
INsensor_pos_geodetic(Matrix)As sensor_pos but using geodetic coordinates.
INsensor_los_geodetic(Matrix)As sensor_los but matching geodetic coordinates.
INrefellipsoid(Vector)Reference ellipsoid.
