CE 597 – Map Projection and Geometrical Geodesy Midterm Study Guide 1. List different types of coordinate systems that can be used to express the earth surface as numbers and explain how they are different from each other. 2. Explain what is a right handed coordinate frame (RHCF) and how you can determine the order of coordinates to make it RHCF. 3. Be able to derive dissimilar coordinate transformations in 2D space and apply the transformation equation to move between the coordinate systems. 4. Be able to derive dissimilar coordinate transformations in 3D space and apply the transformation equation between the coordinate systems, i.e. from earth fixed geocentric spherical coordinates to earth fixed geocentric cartesian coordinates or vice versa. 5. Be able to derive Jacobian matrix 6. Be able to explain the meaning of Jacobian matrix and how it can be applied to perform a dissimilar coordinate transformation and its advantage over other approaches.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
