This is a tour-de-force package of ray-tracing code. Its not for the faint-of-heart, but it is well-documented and looks to be very well vetted.

There is a routine missing as noted in some other reviews, but it can be found under GPS Coordinate Transformations by the same author. Thanks again, well done.

Examples do not run, but end up in errors. e.g. "Undefined function or variable 'tcs2heightT' "

Please either give the correct way to run these files or load all files needed for seeing the results.


the way of executing the files is so frustrating. I followed the PDF file, but still not working.
thanks anyway
