Benchmark disk above orange cone on building on left. Note the building on right with benchmark disk EE0014.

Out with Cache Yoo and GeoMonkeyTiger! today on Black Friday caching instead of shopping. And we're always on the lookout for benchmarks near any caches we find. We were happy to find two in town here today.

This disk was easy to find and in great shape.

Easy Find. Thanks

Easy find from directions and coordinates. Hidden by a small planter that's easily moved. Thanks, Fort Rectus

Documented History (by the NGS)

Unknown by USGS (MONUMENTED)
01/01/1972 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1972 AT BLUE RIDGE. AT BLUE RIDGE, 150 FEET SOUTHWEST OF THE LOUISVILLE AND NASHVILLE RAILROAD STATION, IN THE NORTH QUARTER OF THE INTERSECTION OF MAIN AND DEPOT STREETS, SET VERTICALLY IN THE SOUTHWEST FACE AND 3.7 FEET NORTHWEST OF THE SOUTH CORNER OF THE CORNER COMMERCIAL BUILDING WHICH IS NOW OCCUPIED BY THE FANNIN COUNTY BANK, 37 FEET NORTHWEST OF THE CENTER LINE OF MAIN STREET, 33 FEET NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF DEPOT STREET, AND 1.0 FOOT ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE SIDEWALK.

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.
