Since the coordinates are used to record the track actually taken by the 
searcher, the least significant digis are important. The group with

track possible. LE (law enforcement, in the case of New Hampshire, the 
Fish and Game Department) requires accurate tracks to be archived.

Have you considered addressing SAR groups with your proposals and 
getting their input? It is one thing for a bunch of hams to come up with 
a method; quite another to have something that actually would be useful 
and acceptable to those with the boots on the ground.
