I am a new MAPLE 6 user. I wish to plot a great circle on a sphere, that is,
how do I plot an arc between one set of latitude and longitude coordinates
and another set of latitude and longitude coordinates. For example, the arc
(great circle) between New York City and London, Great Britain.
Any help would be much appreciated. Also, is there by chance, a "package"
for doing celestial navigation using MAPLE?
"Without the Maple software, we would have to spend weeks generating the equations of motion for every experiment. Then the chances that we did it right would basically be near zero. There would always be a mistake somewhere. It is very difficult to set up a dynamic motion model by hand." - Jean-Claude PiedBeouf, Ph.D Manager of Robotics, Canadian Space Agency
"Its very good - highly accurate and easy to use. The speed of Maple allows me to change equations and quickly reintegrate them into the application, so more possibilities can be explored to achieve the precise effect desired." Shawn Neely, Senior R & D Director for PDI/Dreamworks
