nvctr: The n-vector Approach to Geographical Position Calculations using an Ellipsoidal Model of Earth

The n-vector framework uses the normal vector to the Earth ellipsoid (called n-vector) as a non-singular position representation that turns out to be very convenient for practical position calculations. The n-vector is simple to use and gives exact answers for all global positions, and all distances, for both ellipsoidal and spherical Earth models. This package is a translation of the 'Matlab' library from FFI, the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, as described in Gade (2010) <doi:10.1017/S0373463309990415>.
