How to apply triangulation method to measure the area of land


The renowned engineer, Parag Pal, explained the process for working out land area with triangulation in the folowing tutorial.

In surveying, triangulation is the process of determining the location of a point by measuring only angles to it from known points at either end of a fixed baseline, rather than measuring distances to the point directly as in trilateration. The point can then be fixed as the third point of a triangle with one known side and two known angles.

Triangulation can also refer to the accurate surveying of systems of very large triangles, called triangulation networks.
