Found while at a nearby cache

We were across the street for business and made our way over to snap a picture of this one.
It was quite an easy spot once we got close.

Found this one while I was in the area trying to work out a rather involved geocaching series. This was the second to last benchmark of the day, but the last one in downtown Fort Worth. This area is rather ripe with NGS benchmarks and I had fun going after this one. Although, I was completely out of change after this. I'll have to come back when parking is free.

In town on business, had to find a Texas Benchmark while here. This one was perfect since I was finding the virtual cache across the street and logging some waymarks. It was too dark at 6am to get a clear phone photo, but I got one of the building nearby to prove I was here.

V is gone, but V RESET 1964 remains. The mark is in a small pocket park between old FW City Hall and the black cube Federal building. Across the street is another pocket park with a sleeping panther fountain in it. Google "Panther City-Fort Worth TX" and find out what is up with all the snoozing big cats around town (another one is on Weatherford St).

This benchmark is in a concrete block which projects about a foot above the ground. At first I couldn't find it because I was looking for something in the grass, as usual.

You might actually trip over this benchmark if you're looking for something less obvious.

I noticed this one when doing the Cravens' Kitty Cat Napping cache (GC696C). The coordinates are for the cache, I didn't think to note them at the benchmark, but they are within 50 feet.

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 June 1991.
  • 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.
