Some aspects of the methodology of planetary dynamics are discussed. The reference frames for planetary dynamics are considered and the classification of planetary figures is given. Determinations of the parameters of topographic and gravitational figures of the Earth, the Moon and terrestrial planets are summarized and some peculiarities of geometrical and dynamical characteristics of these celestial bodies are considered.
