Early Geocoding

Ordnance Survey1-Tm Via Boing-Boing, early example of geocoding? No mention there of how coordinates were calculated back then. I’m picturing a sextant in one hand and a bubble level in the other. Love the use of the wooden arrow, just to make sure we’re talking absolute precision.
