This JavaScript library covers a range of geodesic calculations, coordinate system conversions, and mapping functions. It started out as a collection of ‘latitude/longitude’ code fragments covering distances and bearings, and has grown steadily since.
 Geodesic calculations (distances, bearings, etc) covering both spherical earth and ellipsoidal earth models, and both trigonometrybased and vectorbased approaches.
 Ellipsoidalearth coordinate systems covering both historical datums and modern terrestrial reference frames (TRFs).
 Mapping functions including UTM/MGRS and UK OS Grid References.
Many of these functions involve complex interdependencies; ES modules are used to organise these interdependencies in a clear robust way within JavaScript, so this library runs in relatively recent browsers/Node.js.
This page summarises all methods available in the library, with links to the more detailed complete documentation. Full source code is available on GitHub (github.com/chrisveness/geodesy), and tests in the browser and Travis CI.
Further information is available on the Movable Type scripts pages for spherical, ellipsoidal/Vincenty, and vectorbased geodesy scripts, and UK OS grid references & UTM/MGRS mapping functions.

Module latlonellipsoidal.js  A latitude/longitude point defines a geographic location on or above/below the earth’s surface, measured in degrees from the equator & the International Reference Meridian and in metres above the ellipsoid, and based on a given datum As so much modern geodesy is based on WGS84 (as used by GPS), this module includes WGS84 ellipsoid parameters, and it has methods for converting geodetic (latitude/longitude) points to/from geocentric cartesian points; the latlonellipsoidaldatum and latlonellipsoidalreferenceframe modules provide transformation parameters for converting between historical datums and between modern reference frames. This module is used for both trigonometric geodesy and n‑vector geodesy, and for UTM/MGRS mapping.

accepted. Examples:

Checks if another point is equal to this point.

Module latlonellipsoidaldatum.js  Historical geodetic datums: a latitude/longitude point defines a geographic location on (or above/below) the earth’s surface, measured in degrees from the equator and the International Reference Meridian and metres above the ellipsoid, and based on a given datum. The datum is based on a reference ellipsoid and tied to geodetic survey reference points. Modern geodesy is generally based on the WGS84 datum (as used for instance by GPS systems), but previously various reference ellipsoids and datum references were used. This module extends the core latlonellipsoidal module to include ellipsoid parameters and datum transformation parameters, and methods for converting between different (generally historical) datums. It can be used for UK Ordnance Survey mapping (OS National Grid References are still based on the otherwise historical OSGB36 datum), as well as for historical purposes.

this.toLatLon 
Converts this Ordnance Survey grid reference easting/northing coordinate to latitude/longitude (SW corner of grid square). While OS grid references are based on OSGB36, the Ordnance Survey have deprecated the use of OSGB36 for latitude/longitude coordinates (in favour of WGS84), hence this function returns WGS84 by default, with OSGB36 as an option. See www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/blog/2014/12/2. 
OsGridRef.parse 
Parses grid reference to OsGridRef object. Accepts standard grid references (eg 'SU 387 148'), with or without whitespace separators, from twodigit references up to 10digit references (1m × 1m square), or fully numeric commaseparated references in metres (eg '438700,114800'). 
this.toString 
Converts this numeric grid reference to standard OS grid reference. 
Class LatLon_OsGridRef extends LatLonEllipsoidal 
Extends LatLon class with method to convert LatLon point to OS grid reference. 
Method (extra to LatLonEllipsoidal)  Description 
this.toOsGrid() 
Converts latitude/longitude to Ordnance Survey grid reference easting/northing coordinate. 
Module utm.js  The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) system is a 2dimensional Cartesian coordinate system providing locations on the surface of the Earth. UTM is a set of 60 transverse Mercator projections, normally based on the WGS84 ellipsoid. Within each zone, coordinates are represented as eastings and northings, measures in metres; e.g. ‘31 N 448251 5411932’. 
import Utm, { LatLon, Dms } from 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/geodesy@2/utm.js'; // browser 

Class Utm  UTM coordinates, with functions to parse them and convert them to LatLon points. 
Constructor  Description 
Utm(zone, hemisphere, easting, northing, datum=LatLon.datums. 
Creates a Utm coordinate object. 
Method  Description 
this.toLatLon() 
Converts UTM zone/easting/northing coordinate to latitude/longitude. 
Utm.parse 
Parses string representation of UTM coordinate. A UTM coordinate comprises (spaceseparated) zone, hemisphere, easting, northing. 
this.toString 
Returns a string representation of a UTM coordinate. To distinguish from MGRS grid zone designators, a space is left between the zone and the hemisphere. Note that UTM coordinates get rounded, not truncated (unlike MGRS grid references). 
Class LatLon_Utm extends LatLonEllipsoidal 
Extends LatLon with method to convert LatLon points to UTM coordinates. 
Method (extra to LatLonEllipsoidal)  Description 
this.toUtm(zoneOverride=undefined) 
Converts latitude/longitude to UTM coordinate. 
Module vector3d.js  Library of 3d vector manipulation routines. 
import Vector3d from 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/geodesy@2/vector3d.js'; // browser 

Class Vector3d  Functions for manipulating generic 3d vectors. 
Constructor  Description 
Vector3d(x, y, z)

Method  Description 
this.plus(v) 
Adds supplied vector to this vector. 
this.minus(v) 
Subtracts supplied vector from this vector. 
this.times(x) 
Multiplies this vector by a scalar value. 
this.dividedBy(x) 
Divides this vector by a scalar value. 
this.dot(v) 
Multiplies this vector by the supplied vector using dot (scalar) product. 
this.cross(v) 
Multiplies this vector by the supplied vector using cross (vector) product. 
this.negate() 
Negates a vector to point in the opposite direction. 
this.unit() 
Normalizes a vector to its unit vector. 
this.angleTo(v, vSign=undefined) 
Calculates the angle between this vector and supplied vector. 
this.rotateAround(axis, angle) 
Rotates this point around an axis by a specified angle. 
this.toString(dp=3) 
String representation of vector.
