Using projections, you can transform points from geo to cartesian,

Thanks for the reply, Barend. I followed Your advice, and looked into
projections. Among other things, I found this:

Here is a sample I am trying to compile (You can see compile error messages
s in comments, I cut out some template bloat from them):

#include <boost/geometry/geometries/point.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/point_xy.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/geographic/core/cs.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/geographic/strategies/andoyer.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/geographic/strategies/vincenty.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/projections/parameters.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/projections/projection.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/extensions/gis/projections/factory.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/core/cs.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/algorithms/distance.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/algorithms/transform.hpp>

#include <iostream>

namespace bg = boost::geometry;

// ( longitude, latitude )
typedef bg::point< double, 2, bg::cs::geographic<bg::degree> > Geo;
typedef bg::point_xy< double > Xy;

int main()
    // error: no matching function for call to
merc_ellipsoid::merc_ellipsoid(const char [26])
    bg::projection::merc_ellipsoid<Geo,Xy> prj2( "+ellps=WGS84 +lon_0=11.6E"
    // error: no matching function for call to
eqdc_ellipsoid::eqdc_ellipsoid(const char [31])
    bg::projection::eqdc_ellipsoid<Geo,Xy> prj( "+lat_ts=20 +lat_0=20
+lon_0=50" );
    Geo a( 50, 20 ), b( 51,21 ), c( 50,21);
    Xy aa, bb, cc;
    prj.forward( a, aa );
    prj.forward( b, bb );
    prj.forward( c, cc );
    cout << aa.x() << ',' << aa.y() << endl;
    cout << bb.x() << ',' << bb.y() << endl;
    cout << cc.x() << ',' << cc.y() << endl;

I can't find any description of how the parameters should be passed to these
projections, so I need some help here.
