+Shorelander Posted October 8, 2008 Share Posted October 8, 2008 (edited) So the most I've seen surveyors with when I've run into them (never occupying a station I've been looking for, mind you; on construction sites or doing land surveying or whatnot) are tripods standing four or five feet. Well, recently I came across the most complete of the Hawaii Territorial stations that I've yet seen, KALAEPOHAKU RESET (TU1291). (This time I actually saw the disk under the iron pole!) So here's the issue: Could a surveyor actually use this station today? They'd have to remove the top part of the iron pipe in order to access the station disk from above - that little divot you see in the center goes down to the disk, but you can't position an instrument over it. Is it feasible to get an instrument over such a mark, centering it on the disk through the pole? Or would they just go for a different mark somewhere else? On the other hand, at least the mark is a bit more useful than WYLLIE 1927 (TU1263): Edited October 8, 2008 by Shorelander Quote Link to comment
