Loxodromic midpoint
Posted:

Can anyone offer formulas for the latitude and longitude of the midpoint M of a loxodrome, given the coordinates of endpoints P0, P1 and assuming a spherical Earth? (By midpoint I mean that a vessel following the loxodrome will log the same distance from P0 to M as from M to P1.)
