found this one while enjoying this awesome park.

This is on the dock! I would not have noticed it if we had not spent so much time there, trying to fish my GPS out before the gators took it.

I found this with DiverRN after she lost her GPS in the water. What a day.

Eagle-Eye found this one at the end of the pier while he was trying to catch tadpoles. Interesting spot for a benchmark!

One of three found while watching manatees at Wakulla Springs. Noted coordinates to be:
N 30 14.125
W 084 18.089

Saw this one while looking for gators before the riverboat ride. Gators were out despite the rain showers today.

Hard to see from the pier, but visible with the pay-to-use binoculars nearby. Or the first and last gator you see on the boat tour.

I found this one by accident after taking the riverboat ride with J&J and T&A.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in December 1996.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
