Can someone explain to me how Triangulation works and what formulas and everything i need to use

MAX

There is some discussion of triangulation in this thread.

The term "triangulation" can refer to a few different problems ... but they all use triangles/trigonometry to locate a refernced point.

Do you have a specific case?

Here's a good place to start ...

MAX:

Go north from Littleton and find the bushwhacker and he will give you a real life demonstration of how to triangulate.

Maxwells triangulation is an inverse of trying to find out where you are at. Say you are the little stump stuck in the woods and you wish to find out where you are at. Well take 2 bearings from prominent landmarks or objects and you can tell where you are at. The real trick is learning how to make your compass and GPS talk to each other and then put it on a map.

Check this site out it should help.

Hey Bushwacker ... what in the world is that photo in your profile?

That's a black lab in the weeds. Just very low res.

Or Bigfoot walking away at a lumbering pace...
