                         Systems (LLS) into ground strike points (GCP), is presented. The 
                         criteria for grouping decision and determination of centroid 
                         (ground strike point) positions are based on the k-means 
                         clustering method. However, the exact metric to be considered for 
                         both criteria can be changed by the user, allowing the use of 
                         error ellipse scaling equations instead of Euclidean distances 
                         when location error information is available. Additionally, the 
                         algorithm was created in such a way that it is capable of 
                         determining the number of strike points (k value) numerically 
                         according to a maximum distance also defined by the user
