5  * \brief GIS Library - Rhumbline calculation routines.
6  *
7  * From "Map Projections" by Peter Richardus and Ron K. Alder, 1972<br>
8  * (526.8 R39m in Map & Geography Library)<br>
9  * Page 20,21, formulas 2.21, 2.22
10  *
11  * Formula is the equation of a rhumbline from (lat1,lon1) to
12  * (lat2,lon2). Input is lon, output is lat (all in degrees).
13  *
14  * <b>Note:</b> Formula only works if 0 < abs(lon2-lon1) < 180.
15  * If lon1 == lon2 then rhumbline is the merdian lon1 (and the formula
16  * will fail).
17  * <br>
18  * <b>WARNING:</b> This code is preliminary. It may not even be correct.
