1.The observation day.

2.The time of solar noon in UTC / GMT.

4.The estimated hemisphere of the place ( North or South).

5.The sun azimuth at solar noon ( North or South). The azimuth angle indicates the direction of the sun in the horizontal plain.

When all the above data are inserted, press the calculate button in order the app to calculate, with accuracy to about ±4 nautical miles, your geo coordinates and the button show on map in order them to be displayed on your android device map app.
