Kerr metric, static observers and Fermi coordinates.

The coordinate transformation which maps the Kerr metric written in standard Boyer-Lindquist coordinates to its corresponding form adapted to the natural local coordinates of an observer at rest at a fixed position in the equatorial plane, i.e., Fermi coordinates for the neighbourhood of a static observer world line, is derived and discussed in a way which extends to any uniformly circularly orbiting observer there.
