Submitting benchmark photos

I read the photo requirements for submitting images to the NGS and was wondering about one thing.

 

The guidelines say "If a station already has acceptable photograhps in the NGS database, additional photographs are not requeired unless changes have occured."

 

How does one find out if there are already photos in the database. I didn't find a way to search that on the NGS site.

 

Thanks all,

There are two ways to find out if a station has already had pictures posted.

 

1 When you view the datasheet of a station, if there are photo's submitted there will be a link on the page saying "Photograph's are available for this station". If you do not see the link, submit your photograph's.

 

Here is an example . Notice where is says Photograph's are available for this station:

 

AB8761 DESIGNATION - BC 04

AB8761 PID - AB8761

AB8761 STATE/COUNTY- NJ/BURLINGTON

AB8761 USGS QUAD - CHATSWORTH (1957)

AB8761

AB8761 *CURRENT SURVEY CONTROL

AB8761 ___________________________________________________________________

AB8761* NAD 83(1996)- 39 45 02.57361(N) 074 35 06.43222(W) ADJUSTED

AB8761* NAVD 88 - 17.8 (meters) 58. (feet) GPS OBS

AB8761 ___________________________________________________________________

AB8761 X - 1,305,227.134 (meters) COMP

AB8761 Y - -4,733,794.997 (meters) COMP

AB8761 Z - 4,056,734.088 (meters) COMP

AB8761 LAPLACE CORR- 0.27 (seconds) DEFLEC99

AB8761 ELLIP HEIGHT- -15.24 (meters) GPS OBS

AB8761 GEOID HEIGHT- -33.03 (meters) GEOID99

AB8761

AB8761 HORZ ORDER - FIRST

AB8761 ELLP ORDER - FOURTH CLASS I

AB8761

AB8761.The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations

AB8761.and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in May 1999.

AB8761

AB8761.The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a

AB8761.high-resolution geoid model.

AB8761

AB8761.Photographs are available for this station.

AB8761

AB8761.The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.

 

2. The second way is an easy way to check without having to access a PID. Go to this link where I have submitted the photograph's for this particular station.

 

http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/get_image.prl?PROCESSING=list&PID=AB8761

 

Then change the PID number in the URL (Address at the top of the page) to the one you are interested in. So you would delete the AB8761 and put in your PID number. Then hit enter and if there are photographs you will see them, if not you won't.
