Multilateration is a far more complicated method. There are many uses for it, and you may want to research the topic more, as accuracy of geolocation will improve. Javawa.nl has some nifty web-based tools to help with some of the math for those not interested in doing their own calculations.
- [Narrator] So multilateration is even more complicated.…This isn't the course to teach that stuff.…There are even more algorithms.…A really fun historical aspect to this is with artillery.…Using sound, time, and known locations,…the location of artillery can be determined.…Amazing stuff.…So the Internet is full of knowledge, right?…JaVaWa has an awesome tool you can play around with.…
You can actually put things on a map, too.…Remember how I said things could get more complicated?…This tool has the following capabilities.…Distance and center point between two points,…I'd use this to easily plot lobs…and see what might be of interest along the route,…such as buildings or parking lots.…You can do distance from a point to a line,…projecting a point,…or you could do the intersection of the lines…from two points with a defined bearing between four points.…
You could use this to plot…the intersecting point with multiple lobs.…Intersection of lines with defined bearing…and lines between two points.…Center of gravity, area, and perimeter of a triangle.…
