Wndsn Telemeter Advanced Tutorials

Making the most out of our graphical distance computers.

Extend the measuring range, jump the scales to areas with higher precision marks, or use the Telemeter for triangulation; position determination without a compass, or with only one line of positioning.


Telemeter Triangulation

If you have a map, and know the dimensions of landmarks in your range of observation, you can calculate their distance and thus determine your position by way of triangulation.

Wndsn Telemeter triangulation

With the distances calculated on the Nomograph, we are drawing circles on the map around the objects measured. Our point of measurement, and hence our position, is at the relevant intersection of the two circles. (Note that of the two intersections of the circles, only one has the right object on the right, and vice versa.)
