Jeff - I was about to go on holidays ...Tony - done<br /><br />Jeff - I was about to go on holidays and used pi to the precision my memory recollects ;-)<br /><br />I was thinking about the usability of these sorts of calculations and thought - well, I never thought I'd need to apply calculations that calculated various forms of decimal degrees & latitude/longitude, but I have. I guess you just have to be on the right project.<br />Luckily, I was about to find the valid calculations on a website that posted it in another language, and I was able to translate.Scott Wesleyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18106937181788036683noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4818542164384221282.post-20638459029929729382010-10-08T19:19:29.847+08:002010-10-08T19:19:29.847+08:00Rather than the mysterious 57.2957795 I'd pref...Rather than the mysterious 57.2957795 I'd prefer to have seen something like (180 / lc_pi)Tony Andrewshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16750945985361011515noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4818542164384221282.post-10834381067159410212010-10-08T17:03:00.850+08:002010-10-08T17:03:00.850+08:00I must say, the need for these sorts of calculatio...I must say, the need for these sorts of calculations have never come up in any project I've been involved in.<br /><br />Pity.<br /><br />I'd increase the accuracy of that PI constant. I'm pretty sure that errors would bubble up quite quickly with only six digits of precision. Just saying :)Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
