Passing through the area on business, had to take the time to look for some caches and benchmarks along the way, but came up empty here.

Still in great shape!

Revisted this benchmark to send a report that this mark was in good condition as described to the National Geodetic Survey.

SC. It's right where it should be. Cache is nearby, too. Canuman

Surprised no one logged this one before considering you have to virtually walk on top of it to get to the virtual cache nearby. 1/2 benchmarks identified on the day.

Control Text

  • The North Carolina/South Carolina HARNS have been completed but, due to contractual restrictions, coordinates for these stations will NOT be published in the near future. In the interim, the published coordinates in North and South Carolina will not be consistent with the Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS). The HARN coordinates for these stations are available upon request. Contact Gary Thompson(919-733-3836), or Lewis Lapine(803-896-7700). In addition, the published North and South Carolina positions (NAD 83 (1986)) are NOT consistent with those determined in adjacent state readjustments. The discontinuity between stations located in North or South Carolina and those in adjacent states which have been adjusted to the HARN may be as much as 5 decimeters. This will result in a significant loss of accuracy over lines crossing such state borders.
  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in October 1998.
  • The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a high-resolution geoid model.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
