Found while at White Point and waiting to hear from the virtual cache people to see if I got the right answer. Visiting my sister and her family—they just moved to John’s Island!!! The pink circle was helpful. Took a picture because I knew it was a benchmark!!!!

Found today while completing the WhereIgo geocache in the area. Will attach photo as soon as I get them downloaded. Thanks for the fun.

I am new to benchmarks so will be out and about with a few folks from the area as we tour Charleston. There is a challenge to find 100 benchmarks. It is pretty darn COLD here and the BM are pretty easy to find. N 32 46.163 W 079 55 725 is my Garmin 78sc waymark. Do photos count for the proof needed for a FOUND? Let me know someone. I am new to this kind of hide and seek.

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Carolina HARNS have been completed but, due to contractual restrictions, coordinates for these stations will NOT be published in the near future.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 classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in July 1986.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 1994.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • 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.
