During stay-home, I rewatched some of my favorite TV anime series of the
past. When I rewatched Zetsuen no Tempest that aired in 2012 a question
suddenly came to mind. Why Yoshino didn't pinpoint the location of the
island in which Hakaze locked up?. Hakaze could make a sundial and
measure the length of night and day from which they can infer the
latitude of the island. The sundial would also tell the time difference
between Hakaze and Yoshino by which they could determine the longitude.
It's a mall solitary island far off from anything and they can easily
find it in a global map as Samon should be able to do.

Or, maybe it's enough for Hakaze to call Yoshino at sunrise and sunset.
Yoshino can get her time difference, latitude and longitude. Then
Yoshino could find her barrel in the island by Google Earth at an
earlier episode, and disillusion the time trap of Samon at a later episode.

Hi Ishikawa-san -.)

Yoshino never struck me as enough of a science geek to think of doing those things. (And Hakaze had virtually no normal education.)
And given that they were out of time sequence, the daylight hours and sunrise sunset times wouldn't have synced anyway.

And my assumption is that Samon's masking spell worked against aerial discovery too, satellite photos wouldn't show it.

Plus, Mahiro wasn't at all interested in helping Hakaze - he only wanted to find Aika's killer.

Zetsuen no Tempest is also one of my all time favourite anime series (along with the manga, which is very good in its own way.)
