What are Geolocators or Distance Locators?

What are Geolocators or Distance Locators?

Geolocation is the identification or estimation of the actual geographic location of an object, such as a radar source, a mobile phone, or a computer terminal connected to the Internet. In its simplest form, geolocation involves the generation of a set of geographic coordinates and is closely related to the use of positioning systems, but its usefulness is reinforced by the use of these coordinates to determine a significant location, such as a direction.

To geolocate or position, the location engine often uses radio frequency (RF) location methods, for example, Time Difference Of Arrival (TDOA) for accuracy. TDOA systems often use map screens or other geographic information systems. When a GPS signal is not available, geolocation applications can use cell tower information to triangulate the approximate position, a method that is not as accurate as GPS but has greatly improved in recent years. This contrasts with previous radiolocation technologies, for example, the search for direction in which a line of support to a transmitter is achieved as part of the process.
Adapting the words of the introduction, then how do our localizers work?

The Geolocator receives the signal that detects the selected metal in the command box, the antenna points in the direction where the metal is buried, ie the antenna points to where the operator should walk.

This buried metal produces a magnetic field called the halo effect, this magnetic field produces negative ions, while the antenna emits a positive signal.

When the antenna passes over the polarity of the point it produces a shock that repeatedly generates the revolution of the antenna.

How to test or know how deep the buried metal is?
The buried metallic object produces magnetic radiation, the depth that the buried object is at is the same distance that magnetic radiation produces.

In order to know the depth that the metal is buried, you must carry out the following process.
Once located the center of the antenna target should be above the center and point its antenna to the ground, then slowly raise the antenna to the level and walk directly from the detected center in a north or south direction, keep the antenna level and at the time the antenna is returned again to go to the center should point from that point to the center, which is the depth distance again.

Prospecting using the cardinal points is important.

Make the direction of layout from north to south or from east to west to approximate the center, thus facilitating the location of the detected point after the point of locating the depth measurement.

Metals that need to perform test practices, 1 to 1 object of iron, aluminum, copper, silver, gold.

Bury each of these metals in different locations at a maximum depth, keep in mind that our devices can detect from 10 meters deep to 50 meters deep with lengths ranging from 1000 meters to 2700 meters distance.

Manipulation antenna
It is very important that the operator is relaxed before prospecting to obtain favorable results since the operator must have the maximum concentration for the locator antenna to operate at 100% of its capacity. To make a good prospection the operator must always be in position and direction of the cardinal points from north to south or from east to west.

The locator detects the magnetic ions produced by the buried frequencies of Metals.
