Thanks Tarou and Vincenzo Manzari. Fixed, I missed the earlier comment by Tarou.

Vincenzo Manzari

I'll confirm what Tarou said, please fix this little bug. Apart from this, the code works very well, thank you.


The following code

a = 6378137.0; % semi-major axis (km), WGS84

should be

a = 6378.1370; % semi-major axis (km), WGS84

Then working fine.
