Abstract: The thirteen points (0,0), , , , , will be at integer distances from one another if the two triads , , , , , are such that the nine sums are all perfect squares. Infinite families of solutions are derived from solutions of , where , etc. Additional numerical examples are given. Two solutions are given in which one of the triads is extended to a tetrad.
