POLL: Should benchmark hunting and trigpoint hunting merge ?

Recommended Posts

Benchmark hunting is a hobby that is restricted to USA. Trigpoints have been placed for same purpose all around the world. Should these two things be merged, so every geocachers in this planet can join this hobby ?

sure why not....

im guessing the biggest problem would be (besides finding time for the admins to import and correct the data) where can you get the info?

does each country with trig points have a database that can be used icon_confused.gif what would it cost icon_confused.gif

A list for the UK trig points exists and I understand it has already been sent in. Jeremy even posted this reply, but I guess there have been more important things to work on.

 

=====================================

If you guys can find a database of benchmarks in the UK, I'd be happy to add them.

Finnish trigpoint database probably exists too. I will ask about it from the National Land Survey of Finland. Finnish trigpoints can be found also from 1:20000 topographic maps.
