GeodeticCurveType::Loxodrome (1)A line of constant bearing, or azimuth. Straight line is a rhumb line.
GeodeticCurveType::GreatElliptic (2)The line on a spheroid (ellipsoid) defined by the intersection at the surface by a plane that passes through the center of the spheroid and the start and end points of a segment. This is also known as a great circle when a sphere is used.
GeodeticCurveType::NormalSection (3)Straight line is a normal section.
