class astropy.coordinates.GRS80GeodeticRepresentation(lon, lat=None, height=None, copy=True)[source]

Bases: astropy.coordinates.BaseGeodeticRepresentation

Representation of points in GRS80 3D geodetic coordinates.

lon, latLongitude, Latitude or equivalent

The longitude and latitude of the point(s), in angular units. The latitude should be between -90 and 90 degrees, and the longitude will be wrapped to an angle between 0 and 360 degrees. These can also be instances of Quantity, Angle, Longitude, or Latitude.


The height to the point(s).

copybool, optional

If True (default), arrays will be copied. If False, arrays will be references, though possibly broadcast to ensure matching shapes.
