Geocentric Linear Velocity?

Recommended Posts

Given a geocentric/world coordinate(x, y, z)[meters], heading[deg] and velocity[m/s] how would I calculate its linear velocity (vx, vy, vz) in the geocentric coordinate system? Thanks, Andrew

This is a nontrivial problem. What is the surface in question (sphere, ellipsoid, etc.)? And by velocity, do you mean its velocity across the surface?

since you mention only one angle, i assume youre dealing with motion constrained to a surface.

which leaves one important question: what kind of surface?
