Consider two coordinate systems on a sphere. The metric tensors of the two coordinate systems are given. Now how can I check that both coordinate systems describe the same geometry (in this case spherical geometry)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(I used spherical geometry as an example. I would like to know the process in general.)
