To find a known point with a theodolite, first identify your starting point and measure the horizontal angle of the known point with the theodolite. Then, using a clinometer, measure the angular height of the known point. Using these two angles and distances between all the intermediate points, calculate the total distance, and then calculate the coordinates of the known point. Finally, use the theodolite to check the accuracy of the results.
