A '''''trilateration station''''' is a ["station"] whose position was computed from measurements of three sides of a triangle. The position of a station whose position is unknown can be determined by trilateration from two stations with known positions. Radar ranging or GPS satellite ranging are typically used for long distances. Taping or EDM measurements are used for short distances.
