    Re: Latitude from two altitudes
    From: Joel Silverberg

    I am familiar with two methods for determining your latitude from double altitudes: an iterative method developed by Cornelius Douwes, a Dutch officer of sea officers and pilots around between 1740 and 1754 and a non-iterative method by Nathaniel Bowditch, first published in the 1826 edition of his New American Practical Navigator. You may view or download a paper which outlines the details of each of these methods at
