The Earth is not a true sphere, it is an ellipsoid, as Earth is slightly wider than it is tall. Although other models exist, the ellipsoidis the best fit to Earth's true shape. .DEFINITION OF GEODESY ã Geodesy is the science concerned with the exact positioning of points on the surface of the earth. n other words, Geodesy is the study of the size and shape of the earth, the measurement of the position and motion of point on the earth! s surface and configuration of the area of large portions of the earth!s surface. 3.FOR&4% FOR F% TTENING ND ECCENTRICITY  Flatte(i(g$ * f  = a − ba First ecce(tricity$ e e ² = a ² − b ² a  ² = 2  f  − f   ² Seco(d ecce(tricity$ e5 e ² = a ² − b ² b  ² !here$ a is semi6ma7or ais a(d , semi6mi(or ais
