I want this app
Download from AppStore

Curious about the purpose of a distant, oddly shaped building? Want to locate a bushfire from its plume of smoke on the horizon? Wondering how far away a thunderhead is? Or do you just want to know which suburb the giant fire breathing lizard is standing on?

Triangulate allows you to take bearings to distant objects and find them on a map. Take one bearing and it will draw a line in the direction you're facing. Take two bearings from different vantage points and and the lines will converge on your target. Take three or more and you can refine the location more precisely.


If you have a comment, complaint or compliment, please refrain from using the app store comments to let me know. Those are separated by country and hard to chase down. They’re intended more for other users to read.

Instead, to make sure you get a direct response, please send them to or tweet me at

I’m always happy to get good feedback, help out anyone with problems and hear any comments you may have.
