11  * From "Map Projections" by Peter Richardus and Ron K. Alder, 1972
12  * (526.8 R39m in Map & Geography Library)
13  * page 19, formula 2.17
14  *
15  * Formula is the equation of a geodesic from (lat1,lon1) to (lat2,lon2)
16  * Input is lon, output is lat (all in degrees)
17  *
18  * Note formula only works if 0 < abs(lon2-lon1) < 180
19  * If lon1 == lon2 then geodesic is the merdian lon1
20  * (and the formula will fail)
21  * if lon2-lon1=180 then the geodesic is either meridian lon1 or lon2
