In reconnaissance work, shadow positioning can often play a breakthrough role. To determine the shadow length of a straight rod at a fixed time and location, taking the solar elevation as the intermediate variable, and a model of the length of the shadow with multiple geometric parameters can be established through trigonometric function relationship.
