XY2LATLON is the jSphere module of jLab.

  XY2LATLON  Converts local Cartesian coordinates into latitude and longitude.
 
    [LAT,LON]=XY2LATLON(X,Y,LATO,LONO) converts (X,Y) position with units 
    of kilometers, specifying a location in a plane tangent to the earth 
    at the point (LATO,LONO), into latitude and longitude locations.  
 
    LONO may each either be specified on the interval [-180, 180] or on the
    interval [0, 360].  Output longitudes LON are defined to be within the
    interval [-180, 180].
 
    LAT and LON may be computed with either the full spherical geometry,
    the default, or using a small angle approximation.  To specify the
    small angle approximation use XY2LATLON(...,'small').
 
    LAT and LON are defined to be NAN for points with SQRT(X^2+Y^2)
    exceeding the radius of the earth.
 
    XY2LATLON(CX,LATO,LONO) with three input arguments, where CX is the 
    complex-valued displacement CX=X+SQRT(-1)*Y, also works
 
    The radius of the earth is given by the function RADEARTH.

    Cell array input / output
 
    XY2LATLON returns cell array output given cell array input.  
 
    That is, if the input arguments are all cell arrays of length K, 
    containing K different numerical arrays, then the output will also be 
    cell arrays of length K.  
 
    This also works if X and Y, or alternatively CX, are cell arrays but 
    LATO and LONO are scalars.
    ___________________________________________________________________
 
    XY2LATLON is inverted by LATLON2XY.
 
    See also LATLON2XY, LATLON2UV.
 
    Usage:  [lat,lon]=xy2latlon(x,y,lato,lono);
            [lat,lon]=xy2latlon(cx,lato,lono);
