Calculate RLL from geocentric geographic (GEO) coordinates

Parameters
geovecarray-like

Nx3 array of geographic radius, latitude, longitude (in specified units)

Returns
rllvecnumpy.ndarray

Nx3 array of [distance from Earth’s center, geodetic latitude, geodetic longitude]

Other Parameters
unitsstr

Units for input geodetic altitude. Options are ‘km’ or ‘Re’. Default is ‘km’. Output units will be the same as input units.

geoidspacepy.ctrans.Ellipsoid

Instance of a reference ellipsoid to use for geodetic conversion. Default is WGS84.
