    is there a hard evidence of this?
    (Lewis and Clark story is rather an evidence of the contrary).
    
    I know almost nothing on the land surveying and its history,
    but I suppose that more precise instruments than sextants
    could be used
    on land, transit instruments, and such.
    (Maybe not for lunars, I don't know).

    What do you mean by using landmarks?
    How is this related to the lunar distances?
