  • Add the Ellipsoid.geocentric_radius method to calculate the distance from the center of the ellipsoid to its surface as a function of latitude (geodetic or geocentric). (#37)

  • Add the Ellipsoid.prime_vertical_radius method for computing the prime vertical radius (usually represented by N in equations) as a function of geodetic latitude. (#35)

  • Fix typo in README contributing section (#32)

First release of Boule including basic functionality:

  • Definition of the Ellipsoid class: based on the semi-major axis, flattening, geocentric gravitational constant, and angular velocity. Other quantities are derived from these 4.

  • Computation of normal gravity and coordinate conversions between geodetic and geocentric.

  • Ellipsoid realizations for the Earth (WGS84 and GRS80) and Mars.
