IP Review:


Transforms coordinates from "heights above the ellipsoid" to "heights above the geoid". This module provides the algorithms from an Earth Gravitational Model as a MathTransform implementation. Installing the JAR on the classpath should be suffisient for making vertical transformations available to an application like any other transforms.

Module Status

The referencing3D plugin itself is stable. However, some changes are required in the referencing module in order to take full advantage of the referencing3D plugin during coordinate transformations. For now, users need to create a math transform explicitly (it is not created automatically by the coordinate operation factory).

Future development

Need to leverage 3D transformations in CoordinateOperationFactory. But this work need to be done in the referencing module, not in this referencing3D plugin.
