However in the situation when the strict boundary accuracy is required and the global model of the Earth's surface is considered (long-range navigation, cartographic projections in small scales, astronomy) the Euclidean geometry becomes not sufficient for the geometric description and the analytic calculations coming from it.
Topics include Euclidean geometry, toy geometries and main definitions, discrete subgroups of the isometry group of the plane and tilings, the Poincare half-plane model, hyperbolic trigonometry and absolute constants, and the hierarchy of geometries.
Before hyperbolic geometry was discovered, it was thought to be completely obvious that Euclidean geometry correctly described physical space, and attempts were even made, by Kant and others, to show that this was necessarily true.
