The geocentric VPB databases have a osg::CoordianteSystemNode at the root of
the scene graph that has the osg::ElliposodModel for the databases, you can
use this to convert XYZ values into lat,long and height values.  You can get
the XYZ values be intersecting the scene using a ray intersection.  See
osgpick for how to do the interesection.
