Um... can anyone here do non-linear regressional analysis? That would be the kind of "mathing" technique that would be most helpful right now. Build a polynomial function given some "n" points are true.
This camera approach is actually starting to seem viable.
I *think* I could code a VB6 program (sorry, all I actually know how to code in) that would take an input image, and then locate the center of two dots, and the distance in pixels between them (provided it was a pretty basic image with nothing other than wall, and dots).
If we had the math figured out, it would be trivial to write a 3 step program (IE, input 3 images: known1, known2, unknown). It could let everyone use their wall as a spectrometer with nothing more than a camera and a grating.
