Boule v0.2.0: Reference ellipsoids for geodesy, geophysics, and coordinate calculations

Uieda, Leonardo; Soler, Santiago Rubén

Boule is Python library for representing Reference Ellipsoids, calculating their gravity fields, and converting coordinates defined on the ellipsoids.

The main use cases are:

  • Calculating normal gravity (for gravity anomalies and disturbances).
  • Spherical gravity modeling, which requires geodetic to geocentric spherical coordinate conversions.
  • Input ellipsoid parameters for spherical harmonic analysis.

Boule is French for "ball" and also a traditional shape of bread resembling a squashed ball (much like the Earth).
