Answer #1: Shooting two azimuths from different locations to find out where a target object is by where the lines cross on a map. Alternatively, shooting azimu…ths to two different objects to find out where YOU are. ====== Answer #1.5 : You are standing on one riverbank. There is a tree on the other riverbank. You want to know the width of the river. People have tried stretching a tape measure across it. None of them was ever seen again. You have to come up with a better way to measure it. You will triangulate it. -- Stand somewhere roughly opposite the tree. It doesn't have to be perfect. Jam a bright red stick into the ground between your feet. -- From there, with your tape measure, walk along the riverbank, mark exactly 100-ft from where you started, and set up your tripod there. Look through your spotting scope and find the red stick in the ground on your side of the river. Then measure the angle you have to turn the scope in order to spot the tree on the other riverbank. Write down the angle in your notebook. -- Go back to the red stick. Walk along the riverbank in the opposite direction, mark exactly 100-ft that way, and set up your tripod there. Look through the scope again and find the red stick in the ground on your side of the river. Then measure the angle you have to turn the scope in order to spot the tree on the other riverbank. Write that one down in your notebook too. -- You have laid out a triangle. The three points that make the triangle are the tree and the two points 100-ft in each direction from the red stick. -- On your side of the river, you know the length of the triangle's 'base' ... it's 200 feet ... and you know the angle of the triangle at each end of the base. -- With that information and just a tiny bit of trigonometry, you can calculate the width of the river at the place where the tree is ... it's the height (altitude) of the triangle. You can do all the calculating indoors, with a pencil and paper, and it's as accurate as your measurements of the 100-ft lengths and the two angles were. (MORE)

To triangulate means to measure something using trigonometricrelationships. It can also mean to survey or map something usingthe triangulation process.

triangulation is when more than one method is used for studying human behavior Not quite. The question referred to triangulation within psychology, but the above given an…swer applies to the field of social science's study methods (which just goes to show that some people literally don't bother to read a question before they answer it, which is extremely irresponsible). In psychology, triangulation refers to dysfunction within a family unit, wherein one family member will communicate with Person A, but not Person B, so that Person A is forced to be the go between for the two. It can also be applied outside the family setting. (MORE)

Triangulation Triangulation is a structure that is used on bridges and they are made up of lots of little triangles. Triangles are so strong because they have a bigger base th…en their tops. All of the weight and the force that is pushing down is at the bottom of the triangle. The weights are then added in decreasing weight until the lightest weight is on top. It is the strength of the base that makes triangles very strong. If they were to use squares instead of triangles that structure will collapse because, the force of the bridge will go equally on the 4 sides of the square and the force will push down a side of the square and move it. So it wont be stable. (MORE)

The triangle is structurally the strongest geometric shape which is why in chassis building you'll see so many of them (in NASCAR for instance). When buying a custom racing or… rodding chassis you might see someone advertising an "X" chassis - what they've done is welded the two parallel frame rails together with a large X in the middle which is essentially made up of 4 triangles. Stop off at your local circle track and hit the pits to take a look as some of the late models or sprinters, if you look closely you'll see examples of triangulation all over the place. Take care!

Parallax is when objects seem to be in a different place, depending on the angle at which they are viewed. An example would be if you block an object in your visual field with… one finger, then close your dominant eye. The object will appear to have moved. Triangulation, used in the context of mathematics and astronomy, is when you determine an unknown distance based on 2 or more known distances. (MORE)
