Traverse survey can change to any shape which accommodate a great deal of different terrain while Triangulation survey is fixed to use of triangles

Any time you measure distance using triangulation or utilise angles in theorems.

Many police diagrams are created and recorded using triangulation or base line mapping. Both require geometry.

The distance of an earthquake epicenter from a seismic station. Using the Three point method, the distance from 3 seismic stations are used to locate the epicenter by triangulation.

Principally in surveying by triangulation: you divide the countryside into imaginary adjacent triangles, each lying on a plane in three-dimensions (E-W, N-S and altitude) between defined points on the ground, so a lot of advanced trigonometry is necessary to calculate the co-ordinates of the triangles' apices. Nowadays large-areas maps are generated from satellite images but triangulation is still necessary for small-scale work such as in building and civil-engineering detail mapping and setting-out.

Yes the Brooklyn bridge does use triangulation. If you want proof look at a really big picture or use this link below. Zoom in and you can see the triangulation at the sides.

Answer #1:no=================Answer #2:Yes.Another answer: The primary use of triangulation may not be to measure the distance of stars, but the method which is used to measure the distance of close stars is primarily triangulation.

with triangulation

Yes. GSM phones (phones sold by T-Mobile and AT&T) use triangulation.
