I am working on a system that detects the
lat/longof vehicles. I want to track other vehicle's position: left, top-left, right, top-right, bottom-right, bottom-left etc based on
I have used following logic to detect the bearing and direction of a vehicle:
Using the above script, I am able to detect the direction and bearing of other vehicles but could not get their position: left, right etc.
Relative to another point, and assuming a north-oriented map:
If the longitude is less, it is to the left, if more, to the right.
If the latitude is greater, it's above it, if less, below it.
Based on the North-clockwise bearings in the first link, 0 is up, between 0 and 90 (exclusive) up-right, 90 right, > 90 - < 180 down-right, 180 down, > 180 - <270 down-left, 270 left, > 270 - <360 up-left.
Which all seems too simple, am I missing something in your question?
