At Wolfram Demonstrations, I perused the greater triangle center material that we had, including a new one.

Also items like Triangle Calculator and Spherical Triangle Solutions, along with many recent submissions by Izidor Hafner. After writing the third demo above, I was surprised to rediscover the second, and astounded by the discussions in the first. In 2D euclidean space, these points in a triangle are known as Kimberling Centers. In 3D euclidean space, spherical geometry and hyperbolic geometry; many of these same points exist, but exact areal coordinates for them are not yet known. It seems like they should be findable, though, with this much interplay.
