holograph Posted August 24, 2006 Share Posted August 24, 2006 I've been doing some research on the Transcontinental Triangulation, the first coast-to-coast network in the U.S. There were recent threads in this forum touching upon portions of the network, specifically the Davidson Quadrilaterals in California and the Great Hexagon of Nevada and Utah. I decided to find the locations of the stations of the entire network and cross reference them to the PIDs in today's database. I've begun putting some results on the Benchmark Wiki site. The complete nework is briefly described in an overview page. The first detailed page that has been created is the Eastern Shore series page. It's been fascinating to learn how the stations were established and used, and the historical context of some of the stations that we can still find today. Of couse, no Wiki can ever be considered complete. You are all welcome to add information as you see fit. Come visit and help make the site better! Quote Link to comment
