I have a data set that contains entities and lat/lon values for each one, potentially multiple lat/lon values.
I believe that some of these entities may actually be the same person, although I can't tell this from the data. Is there a method that can be used to determine the similarity between multiple entities based on the various lat/lon values each one has?
It would be easy if there was just one lat/lon value per entity, but I potentially have multiple. One approach would be to match entities that share all lat/lon values, but I still want to identify entities that partially match on lat/lon values (e.g. 2 out of 3 lat/lon values).
It seems like this might be a problem that has been solved before, so I figured I would ask. I'm honestly not even sure if I am thinking about this the right way.
