VBA to determine the Geodesic distance and azimuth using Puissant formules

This is a first version of a MVBA application to determine the Geodesic Distance, Geodesic Azimuth between two points using MicroStation V8i SS3/ Bentley Map V8i SS3.

This VBA application was developed to determine the geodesic distance and azimuth between two points using the Puissant formulation and was based from the tool 'Great Circle' available in MicroStation Geographics and Bentley Map V8 XM

Note: This application was developed using equations originally derived by Puissant in the 18th century. They have been extended and used by a number of different geodetic organizations for their position computation work. These equations are not derived with great rigor and are not usually used for lines greater than 100 km in length.
