when 3D polar measurements are produced to the point with the well-known geodetic coordinates and the coordinates of the observation instrument need to be determined (for example, to determine the position of an observation instrument in an aircraft by measurements to a point on the earth with well-known coordinates).
When the digital terrain map is available, the height of the topographic surface is computed as a function of geodetic coordinates
20-30 km) and for the simplification of the problem the surface of the ellipsoid may be replaced by the surface of a sphere with the curvature radius R = [square root of M x N], where M and N are the radius of curvature of meridian and radius of the curvature of prime vertical respectively calculated with respect to the geodetic coordinates of point [P.
