coordinates

coordinates

numbers specifying the position of an object or body. Cartesian coordinates are specified on axes that are orthogonal (at right angles) to each other (usually X, Y and Z or i, j and k). polar coordinates are specified by an angle (degrees) and a distance from a fixed point.

coordinates

of a point on a graph or grid map, the points on the horizontal and vertical axes which identify the location of the point on the graph/map.

Multilevel Coordinate Localization (MCL) method [7], which assumes coordinates of the beacon nodes are unknown as well, calculates coordinates of the beacon nodes using the same algorithm via the same coordinate system, and then compares the solutions with the real coordinate to find out the error, and thereby uses the error to correct the estimated unknown nodes' coordinates.
Declaring coordinates to be pathological is a fallacy because it is a violation of general relativity at its most fundamental level.
