However, with some 'knowns' you could reduce the amount of error by triangulating the information that is easily garnered by NS.
In this example the NS1 is the first of 3
readings from within NS. NS2, and NS3 are the subsequent readings
with matching suspected AP locations in relation to the unknown actual AP location.
Notice that there is an obstruction blocking the NS1 reading making it appear much further away than it actually is, where as NS2, and NS3 have no such obstructions and their suspected location is much closer to the actual location of the AP. Using a triangulation formulae to plot location would be much closer to the truth than if you were just using NS1 information.
Yes, I understand that it would be almost impossible to get 100% accuracy, but with triangulaion you could get a lot more accurate than the current guesses.
You're forgetting about multipath issues with this particular band.
