Abstract:

This report contains a detailed exposition of the theory of the spherical representation of surfaces in Gaussian differential geometry and its application in differential geodesy. The theory is developed in a new unified approach which is then applicable to the Marussi-Hotline theory of differential geodesy. Our presentation is logically a completion and continuation of the sketch of the theory given in Chapter 11 of Martin Hotines Mathematical Geodesy U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C., 1969.
