I am currently working on a project to model the location of icebergs in the northwest atlantic. When an iceberg is sighted, an error circle is plotted around it (with a bivariate normal probability distribution), with a radius of 30 nautical miles.
My question is two-fold.
How can I plot latitude and longitude lines in mathematica, with the lat/long point of the iceberg with the circle around it)
Knowing the latitude and longitude of the center of an iceberg (i.e., the center of the circle with radius 30 nautical miles), how can I calculate how much probability is in each 1x1 degree section
Please the attached picture for amplifying information.
Any light you can shed on this would be very helpful, thank you! Let me know if you need anymore information.
