geocentric coordinates

[¦jē·ō¦sen·trik kō′ȯrd·ən·əts]
(astronomy)
Coordinates that define the position of a point with respect to the center of the earth; can be either cartesian (x, y, and z) or spherical (latitude, longitude, and radial distance). Also known as geocentric coordinate system; geocentric position.
