|geod2cart(src, curve, normal)
function point = geod2cart(src, curve, normal)
%GEOD2CART Convert geodesic coordinates to cartesian coord.
% PT2 = geod2cart(PT1, CURVE, NORMAL)
% CURVE and NORMAL are both [N*2] array with the same length, and
% represent positions of the curve, and normal to each point.
% PT1 is the point to transform, in geodesic coordinate (first coord is
% distance from the curve start, and second coord is distance between
% point and curve).
% The function return the coordinate of PT1 in the same coordinate system
% than for the curve.
% TODO : add processing of points not projected on the curve.
% -> use the closest end
