As much as i understand. Geodesic line of curvature is a line on the surface such that the projection on the tangent plane of it's curvature vector is 0 at every point. The lines of curavture are lines such that their tangent direction is coincident with one of the principal direction on the surface at every point. But I can't see the difference between them. Can anyone make it clear for me?
