radiolocation

[¦rād·ē·ō·lō′kā·shən]
(engineering)
Determination of relative position of an object by means of equipment operating on the principle that propagation of radio waves is at a constant velocity and rectilinear.

radar

(RAdio Detection And Ranging) A method of determining the location and speed of an object. Radar works by transmitting signals and measuring the time it takes for them to bounce off the targeted object and return. See Doppler radar and LIDAR.

We estimated second-order availability of forest structure characteristics at home range scale (Johnson, 1980), based on the relative amounts of three canopy-cover classes and five basal-area classes within the minimum convex polygon created from all radiolocations of squirrels captured in each study area (Guthery et al., 2005).
We estimated a value for road, water, and elevation for each radiolocation used to estimate annual period UDs and an equivalent number of randomly distributed points in each study area using Geospatial Modelling Environment (Version 0.7.1.0; Beyer, 2012).
