A network of triangles with vertices of GNSS observation points is created. The deformation parameters of each triangle were calculated using the software "GPS TriangleStrainCalculator" developed by UNAVCO. The obtained values are used to construct maps of distribution of velocities of dilation and displacement of points for the period of 2003-2018 years, that shows movements of tectonic plates in the area Penola Strait.
