GEO

GOST 7.67 Latin three-letter geocode for the Republic of Georgia. The code is used for transactions to and from Georgian bank accounts and for international shipping to Georgia. As with all GOST 7.67 codes, it is used primarily in Cyrillic alphabets.

When the digital terrain map is available, the height of the topographic surface is computed as a function of geodetic coordinates
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).
Furthermore, when one knows the conditional intermediate horizontal coordinates of this point, polar measurement data are deduced into the horizontal coordinate system of point [P.sub.i] with the well-known geodetic coordinates. It is necessary to know distance in space [s.sub.io], zenith angle [z.sub.io] and direction [A.sub.io] of the origin (point [P.sub.i]) of the horizontal coordinate system.
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.sub.i].
