Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-466) Gnomonic projection
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2019 14:51:00 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-466:

             Summary: Gnomonic projection
                 Key: SIS-466
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Referencing
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux

Implement the Gnomonic projection, where geodesics are straight lines. Formulas for the sphere
are given in Snyder. Formulas for the ellipsoid are impossible, but Charles F. F. Karney in
[Algorithms for geodesics (SRI International)|]
gives a form where straight lines are very close to geodesics.
