    Snellius Construction questions
    From: NavList
    Date: 2009 Jan 5, 12:43 -0800

    
    
    I have found an intriguing example of triangulation from a 16th century 
    mathematician, Willebrord 
    Snellius(http://www.sailingissues.com/navcourse4.html). I have searched other 
    web sources on the web and so far, have had no success in finding a straight 
    forward explanation of how this method of triangulation works. Have any of 
    you actually used the "Snellius Construction" technique, and could you help 
    me understand it as a practical navigation application?
    
    Thank you,
    
    Todd Frye
