I don't know of any difference in the connotation of the two words,
but "location" would probably sound a bit odd to anyone who spends a
lot of time with graphics code. If you want to also be explicit about
an object's orientation, "translation" is also a synonym for position/
location that you might use.
You might also want to bug Dan Amelang from Viewpoints to see if he's
recently written anything about Gezira (roughly speaking, a more
advanced version of Cairo).
