Convert between geodetic and authalic latitudes
ConformalLatitudeConverter object provides conversion
methods between geodetic and conformal latitudes for an ellipsoid with a given
The conformal latitude maps an ellipsoid (oblate spheroid) to a sphere while preserving shapes and angles locally. (Curves that meet at a given angle on the ellipsoid meet at the same angle on the sphere.) Use conformal latitudes when implementing conformal map projections on the ellipsoid.
You can use the
map.geodesy.ConformalLatitudeConverter function to create a
Eccentricity— Ellipsoid eccentricity
Ellipsoid eccentricity, specifed as a numeric scalar.
Eccentricity is in the interval [0, 0.5].
(Eccentricities larger than 0.5 are possible in theory, but do not occur in
practice and are not supported.)
