Dont think the section on seismics belongs here. 14:42, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Natural vs technological[edit]

This article manages to completely avoid mentioning its very close relative: sound localization. That one is about the natural methods, this one about amplifying natural methods using technology. Not good! The only brush with that other article in this one is the tiny section entitled "Biological echo location", including not even a link to the main article. The topics should both refer to each other, at least. I do not think they should be merged but they could be to cover the subject in a very complete manner.

is this paragraph correct?[edit]

Microphones used with these devices enable active localization while speakers enable passive localization.

On tablet so hard to edit, but have read that sentence a few times, and seems inverted. A reciever/microphone would be used for passive (and active) while a transmitter/speaker would be used for active. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:20, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
