R package for triangulation?

What R packages are you using for wildlife radio-telemetry triangulation these days? Seems there are a few available (I last used sigloc in 2016, but its no longer on CRAN).


This paper mentions some, and is just a great review on localization more broadly! I'd look into gibbonR and warbleR

Acoustic localization of terrestrial wildlife: Current practices and future opportunities (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ece3.6216).

This paper used Sound Finder -- Validation of an Acoustic Location System to Monitor Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii) Long Calls (https://doi.org/10.1002/ajp.22398)

And this one used a MATLAB script -- Tracking cryptic animals using acoustic multilateration: A system for long-range wolf detection (https://doi.org/10.1121/1.5092973)
