Maps must have the correct measurements to translate real distances to a viewable scale. GPS (Global Positioning Systems) use satellites above the Earth and receivers on the Earth to track where you are in relation to where you need to be. The application of measuring goes well beyond travel, however. For buildings to be structurally sound, precise measurement must be done before and during construction. Production lines of just about any product imaginable requires accurate measurement of size and weight as well.

Using relations and clever mathematics we can measure just about everything, even things colossal in size like the c
