Localising the sources of gravitational waves (GWs) in the sky is crucial to observing the electromagnetic counterparts of GW sources. The localisation capability is poor by a single GW detector yet can be improved by adding more detectors to the detector network. In this paper we review recent studies on scientific benefits of global detector networks and focus on their localisation capability. We employ Wen-Chen's formula to compare this merit of current and future detector networks for localising gravitational wave bursts. We find that the addition of a new detector located in Japan, or India, or Australia will increase angular resolution fold with respect to current LIGO-Virgo network, and that the angular resolution improvement by adding a single detector in Australia is comparable to that achieved by adding detectors in both India and Japan. A six-site network achieves a 11-fold improvement in angular resolution compared with the existing three-site network.
