+The difference between geocentric and geodetic coordinates lies in the 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.

* 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.
