Abstract: We examined four non-iterative and four iterative methods for the computation of ellipsoidal latitude and height from the Cartesian coordinates using a performance index, defined by the ratio of the each method’s CPU time to a reference method’s CPU time; hence the inferences about the performance of the methods are less dependent on the computing platform. We find that the iterative methods are faster than the non-iterative methods by a factor of three. Almost all of the iterative methods quickly converge to sub millimeter level right after two iterations, an accuracy which exceeds the requirements of any practical application.
