If you get a micro, and you know from a GPS where you are, and then you
up another position, one would assume you can then apply a basic "is there
anyone in my box" calculation ?

For example

I am at

2734.44 15206.20 and another object is at
2734.45 15206.20 - does not match - outside the box

2734.44 15206.20 and another object is at
2734.44 15206.20 - match - inside the box

I spose the size of the area depends on how many significant digits of the
position you use ?

You could make it tighter by comparing more digits, and wider if you
less ?

Comments ?
