USGS is interested in getting recovery reports

Recommended Posts

Need more help -

 

1) I THINK I started a seperate thread on meridian marks but can't find it, any thoughts? Would it have been deleted/merged for some reason?

 

2) If anyone knows how to do this - I need the coordinates (in same format for use in GPS) exactly one mile north and one mile south of: N 38° 21.229 W 081° 37.582

 

3) Thanks EdrickV - next time I am up that way I will use your suggestions!

Coordinates for 1 mile north are 38° 22.159' & 81° 37.509'.

For 1 mile south they are 38° 20.352' & 81° 37.558'.

 

I used Delorme Topo 9 mapping program.

Thanks - I am now even more perplexed reagrding the marks I am looking for as the south coordinates are in the middle of the river when the mark should be on a hill.

 

Thanks for helping though.

Thanks DaveD.

 

All meridian mark discussion has moved to its own thread.

 

So.. I brought it off topic - now bringing it back ON topic: USGS marks.

FizzyCalc is a nice tool for your box

Hi all - going to look for marks from 1902 tomorrow and here are a few words I ran across: "custom-house" and foundation "water table." Any idea what I am looking for?

From the Free Dictionary: 2. (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Architecture) an offset or string course that has a moulding designed to throw rainwater clear of the wall below.

 

I bet somebody will come up with a logged photo shortly. MEL
