RE: Geometry: triangulation for measuring a lot/yard
Hi! My first post here... =)
Isn't this problem solvable using ruler and compass? Check this out: Code:
NWSW, NWSE, NESW and NESE corresponds to distances between points. The idea is to find the intersection (third vertex of the triangle) of the circles centered at SW with radiuses NWSW and NESW. The same for SE and circles with radiuses NWSE and NESE. Kind of hard to explain (for me), the attached images may be helpful...
