In town. Disk in good condition.

Found the magnetic type. Great benchmark.

We found this one while gathering information for the Treasure Map cache. This is A.

Recovered this benchmark as well in good condition. Staff had it flagged for some reason.

Found this one today while out on campus collecting information for two geocaches in the area which involve benchmarks. It is amazing to me that I have seen this and several other benchmarks and I can't seem to remember exactly where they are when I actually want to find them. Thankfully the GPS gets me close enough to find it. The magnetic station mark is still in good condition and hasn't been disturbed by our facilities staff.

Found this while doing benchmarking: Fayetteville.

Found this one back on March 17th. It was in great shape.

found a couple of weeks ago, don't remember the date... working on benchmarking fayetteville quiz - wondering about this one, though, as none of the points seemed to me to point north...

This is the first benchmark of this type that I've found. It was the first of many finds today at the University.

This is the first magnetic station that I have seen...kind of interesting looking. I utilized a friend on my crew to help tape off the distances and she actually found it first...her first find.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in September 1999.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • 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.
