Alex Alegado - yea it's not triangulation, I stand corrected.
Oct 20th 2009 8:30PM Two points would give you 2 possible locations since the circles will intersect at 2 locations :)
Oct 20th 2009 8:21PM Err, you get a distance at 3 points. You draw a circle around each of those points with the distance as a radius. The circles will intersect at the location. What did I miss? Maybe if it's really far away you'll have to take earth curvature into account, but there are formulas for that too. The simple way would be to go to that location, and try the same trick again. in short distance it should be more accurate
Oct 20th 2009 8:05PM Cute, but I think that 3 points would be enough to triangulate the exact location
Feb 22nd 2009 3:14PM All the Warcraft novels I read ranged from readable though pretty bad (Day of the Dragon and war of the ancients) to horrible (Lord of the Clans). All in all, while learning the background of wow is nice, there are far far better fantasy novels out there.
