The CPS is for positioning artefacts on board the station, and not using GPS, as an global positioning system is unusable in context of liftoff from earth.
It is a cylyndrical positioning system.

directions

corewards

core is the true core and the only point where you can't go corewards.
core is defined as c0c0c0c0 or the REal core _c0Re_ and the main-antenna marks its position.

clampwards

when you're going towards the rim of the spacectation.

clockwise

going against how you would write the letter _C_

counterclockwise

going with the way one would write the letter _C_.

level

We have excavated 3 levels

Level 1 - c_huttle & tower
Level cero - mainhall
Level -1 - nerdarea and labs

notation

short format

Bold uppercase c in code style _C_

long format

c is a good separator and will be used to separate all parts of the coordinates.

c{version, 3}c{(circular) angle}c{distance from core, radial distance r}c{level}

c\d+c{0.0-360.0}c\d+c(-)\d+

Example: c3c30c1140c0 (mainhall)

The first element: version number

Right now we are in the 3rd reconstructions phase and therefore should use version c3 but still only have and use c2 maps. If we refer to location on the previous configurations, we change the version number accordingly.
There is a transformation matrix for transforming coordinates between versions.

The second element: the angle

Is a float number. c-base is at c30

  1. What unit is used to specify the distance?
  2. Which direction is "angle 0"?
  3. Does the angle increase clockwise or counter-clockwise?
  4. This definition lacks a reference to the standard on how to write the letter 'c'.

  1. multiples of pi (just kidding, we take metric system units on this version)
  2. we're working on that right now. the main difficulty is that we only have a version 2 map and the excavation point is off the map, angle for mainhall is c30
  3. clockwise, and we should change how we write the letter c, should also go clockwise
  4. see 3 if written out it is a bold uppercase c in code style _C_

the angle of rs20 (cbrp3) is ca. 30 degrees

The first c0 in the CPS is the version number. Right now we are in the c3 era. If we refer to location on the previous configurations, we change the version number accordingly.

If we only allow full degrees the accuracy at the outer edge of the station is pretty bad.

@cketti Good point I updated the angle to float.
