Abstract : This article summarizes the current problems involved in the projection of points on the surface of the Earth onto a ground-based reference ellipsoid on the basis of geodetic and gravimetric principles. A method combining the salient features of a number of techniques was developed and described. It permits the utilization on non-reduced measurement results, yet permits the calculation of both the internal and the external potential of the Earth and is relatively unaffected by differences in altitude. With the aid of this technique it is possible to correlate independently situated geodetical networks with a relatively high degree of approximation.
