#Geodetic musings

This is a litle benchmark of three Python libraries to compute geodesic distances:

  • Pyproj.
  • Pygc.
  • GeographicLib.

##Benchmark in a IPython Notebook You can see benchmark in a IPython Notebook with all computations and outputs in this links:

  • Pyproj (with Proj4 C Library v.4.9.1) + Pygc + GeographicLib:

Link to IPython Notebook

  • Pyproj (with Proj4 C Library v4.8.0) + Pygc + GeographicLib:

Link to IPython Notebook

##Script You can also launch the benchmark from shell:

$ python geodesicdist.py

You can test different Proj4 versions here:
