Fotos panorámicas tomadas desde el fanal de una torre, con 360 º de campo de visión.

Le agradezco por su ayuda con "Position Points". Espero que me puedas ayudar con otra pregunta. Si quieres lo puedo hacer a través de Proz.com para que recibas más puntos KudoZ.

Sólo he encontrado la traducción de náutica que es "beacon". Me podría ayudar?

Beacon


Explanation:
Opino que es el faro situado arriba de la torre de control de los aeropuertos. Esta luz gira constantemente con un lado de luz roja y la otra blanca. También hay beacons de señalamiento y posicionamiento, por ejemplo ADF (automatic direction finder), pero estos emiten señales de radio y no de luz. Espero sea de ayuda.

Explanation:
NOTE: Although "fanal" usually refers specifically to a beacon signal or a lantern in a lighthouse, in your context it is apparently being used more generally to refer to the part of a tower in which a beacon or signal lantern would be located -- that is, the top of the tower, which is the only single point that affords a full 360-degree radius of vision. -- Hope this helps!
