In both cases, '''altitude''' is the height of the respective point above the surface of the [[Ellipsoid]] and '''longitude''' is the angle between the planes parallel to the earth axis and passing through the Greenwich Meridian respectively the point designated by the coordinates.
The difference between geocentric and geodetic coordinates lies in the defintion definition of '''latitude''':
* In '''geocentric coordinates''' latitude is the angle between the equatorial plane and the line crossing through the earth's center and the point designated by the coordinates.
