    Geocentric and Geodetic

    This is a tired old question, and OT, but I will ask anyway.

    Does anybody know of a web site that offers:
    1. Geocentric to Geodetic conversion using multiple DATUMS.
    2. Source code in something other than FORTRAN for this?

    I'd be happy to just find the snippet with the correct constants. I need to account for the difference between Clarke 1866 and WGS 84.

    Not sure as well, but you can also try :

    http://www.remotesensing.org/gdal/ (rasters)
    http://www.remotesensing.org/ogr/ (vectors)

    It handles reprojections between different coordinate systems, so it might be able to help you out.
