in reply to Data visualisation.


what about something along these lines. Set A to coordinates (0,0) and B to coordinates (0, 633).

Say C has coordinates (x, y).

You have:

sqrt (x + y) = 257 sqrt(x + (633 - y)) = 390
Solving this system of two equations is straight forward. (Hoping I did not goof the maths ;-) For the next points, one needs to be a bit more general and use the distances to A, B and C.
