How can you get coordinate data from receivers? I thought they only gave distance or something.

Correct. You don't get the coordinates directly. However, their messages contain distance. Using the known distance to multiple station transmitters along with their distance/location relative to each other, you can calculate intersection point of their virtual spheres by trilateration.

Although I co-wrote ISAN Documentation, I don't know the fancy math there well enough to elaborate further. :)

Planning to make more ISAN videos in the future. Collective's ISAN devs are working on a few other addons to further aid navigation and travel within Starbase.
