Triangulation Using Fixed Bearings for Search, Rescue, and Fire Location
i see a request for a bearing line. Good. Would like to see that feature added along with the ability to have several bearing lines on a map at the same time. All the mapping applications I have seen so far allow one bearing at a time if they have the bearing option.
What Search and Rescue along with fire fighters need is a way to put in a known point with a bearing then add more bearing points to get a crossing intersection to establish location of down part, radio beacon, fire, etc.
This feature would also be good for those of use who storm spot as well. Storm spotter can call into net control with their location and bearing. Another storm spotter reports in on the same storm. Net control can them get an approximate location to report to the National Weather Service.
