Geo::Coordinates::Converter::LV03 - Convert Swiss LV03 coordinates to WSG84 and vice versa

VERSION

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

    use Geo::Coordinates::Converter::LV03;

    my ($x, $y) = Geo::Coordinates::Converter::LV03::lat_lng_2_y_x($φ, $λ);
    my ($φ, $λ) = Geo::Coordinates::Converter::LV03::y_x_2_lat_lng($x, $y);
   

EXPORT

On request, lat_lng_2_y_x and y_x_2_lat_lng are exported:

    use Geo::Coordinates::Converter::LV03 qw(lat_lng_2_y_x y_x_2_lat_lng);

    my ($x, $y) = lat_lng_2_y_x($φ, $λ);
    my ($φ, $λ) = y_x_2_lat_lng($x, $y);

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

lat_lng_2_y_x($lat, $lng)

Convert a latitude/longitude tuple to a Swiss LV03 datum.

Note: the Swiss seem to name the east-west axis by Y and the the north-south axis by X. Hence the strangly order of y and x in the sub's name.

y_x_2_lat_lng($y, $x)

Convert a Swiss LV03 datum to a latitude and longitude tuple.

Note: the Swiss seem to name the east-west axis by Y and the the north-south axis by X. Hence, the first argument is named y, the second x.

WARNING

The document from which I derived the formulas (see LINKS) contains this friendly warning; »Diese Formeln haben eine reduzierte Genauigkeit und sind vor allem für Navigationszwecke vorgesehen. Sie dürfen nicht für die amtliche Vermessung oder für geodätische Anwendungen verwendet werden!« (that is: only to be used for navigational purposes, not of exact (or even official) measurements or geodatic applications).

WHY

Why was I not using the already existing Geo::Coordinates::Converter?

I tried, but that module's code seemed too hard and esoteric to extend. So I made this module a seperate one.
