A geodetic coordinate system, or its synonym ellipsoidal coordinate system, is a coordinate system in which position is specified by geodetic latitude, geodetic longitude and (in the three-dimensional case) ellipsoidal height.

Note to entry: Geodetic coordinate system and ellipsoidal coordinate system are used synonymously but have separate entries in the ISO.
