Out doing a little benchmarking with BasicPoke and grabbed this one.

Had a chance to run over and see this one today after work. Couldn't get to close because of the flower bed.

Found as previously described.

Saw it.

Found this one while in town Caching.

I saw this on a drive by also.

This was a drive by sighting. It is easily visible from Roger Ave. if you know what you are looking for.

Easy find and as previously mentioned you can see it from Rogers Avenue. History Note: The MidTown Apartments used to be St. Edward Hospital years ago.

In plain sight visable from the Rogers Avenue Sidewalk. My first benchmark find.

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.
