Abstract : This is a written version of an abstract of the same title which was presented at the 20th General Assembly of the International Association of Geodesy (Vienna, August 1991). It addresses the various roles of coordinates in theoretical geodesy: determinative coordinates in classical geodesy, descriptive coordinates in the Marussi-Hotine formulation of differential geodesy, and our new notion of permissible coordinates in a reformulation of the Marussi-Hotine theory.
