+Black Dog Trackers Posted June 6, 2005 Share Posted June 6, 2005 There are many cases (hundreds?) of reference marks incorrectly being logged as triangulation stations, traverse stations, benchmarks, etc. on the GC site. This is not the best situation for the overall credibility of GC PID reports. In the GC benchmark FAQ pge, the section called "What are reference marks and azimuth marks for and how do I log them?" explains that finding a reference mark or azimuth mark doesn't count as a find of a primary station. This paragraph has probably prevented hundreds of instances of this kind of incorrect logging but doesn't seem to be enough. I'm wondering if changing the actual logging page from this: Post a new log In reference to: HILLTOP (NGS Benchmark) Type of log: - Select One Date Logged: X Add a waypoint to the log Comments: to this (I made the changes blue): Post a new log In reference to: HILLTOP (Marker type: triangulation station) Note: If you found a disk with an arrow (>----|---->) in the center of it, and the word "REFERENCE" or "AZIMUTH" on its edge, it does not count as a find for HILLTOP unless the Marker Type: line in the description for HILLTOP says either "reference mark disk" or "azimuth mark disk". Type of log: - Select One Date Logged: X Add a waypoint to the log (enter waypoint coordinates only for "location is SCALED" marks) Comments: would help significantly enough to make this change?
