Can someone explain what this function does? To me, ECEF is a cartesian system centered at the center of the earth, and values near the surface should be in the neighborhood of 6e6 meters. When I plug [lat,lon,alt] values into this function with zero altitude at the equator, I got a value of 103. When I plugged in 90 degree latitude, I got complex numbers out. This is with grs80. Thanks.
