The UNB-VMF1 service has been designed and implemented by Matthew McAdam utilizing contributions by Landon Urquahrt and Felipe Nievinski. Our raytracing package has been designed and implemented by Felipe Nievinski at the University of New Brunswick whereas Landon Urquhart developed the initial UNB-VMF1 code. Our implementation also uses some of the VMF1 routines written by Johannes Boehm at the Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics in Vienna, Austria.
