The determination of distances and directions between points or, what is equivalent, the determination of the geodetic coordinates of the points is a long and arduous job when the points are widely separated. Stations may be located by the classical geodetic methods of triangulation or trilateration in a series of steps involving the repetitious measurement of many angles and/or distances. There are, however, many disadvantages to this classical method when the stations are separated by long distances.
