Minimal quantity of stations
#1
Hi everyone!
Problem is that I have only one station in my region now. The nearest stations from me is a thousands km.
So, now I can't get a good accuracy for my region. I plan to setup several stations with distance 100-200 km between them.
So, the question is how much stations will be enough? What is the optimal distance between them will be good?
Any other recomendations?
Thank you.
Stations: 1307, 1357, 1358, 1409, 1550, 1552, 1558, 1569, 2037

Welcome... I see you are only 3986 km from me, but you are my second closest station. Lightning
Eagerly awaiting a few more to pop up in the region.

Knowing you need at least 3 for triangulation. And from there on it gets more accurate to a point with more. But for me if you have choice of place. Get real quality sites with lowest possible noise so readings even over longer stretches are clean and accurate. Then try to see how to spread them best so crossing of all cover best the area you want and better less and good then trying to have it all at once. Over time other stations can come close up the holes in the grid. My 2 cents

It depends of the size of the region. 100-200km is already very good.

BTW: I deleted the other thread with exactly the same question.

I'm no 'pro' at this but 500-600 km spacing is optimal distance for accuracy? and you want them to 'box in' (i.e. surround) the strikes you want most accurately positioned. (Note: need not be a square shape)

again I might have misunderstood
