NGS map

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a map they use to search for benchmarks? I was using the following: http://beta.ngs.noaa.gov/googletest/NGSMap/NGSMap.shtml However, for some reason it seems to be broken. I've tried on multiple computers and cannot close the "getting started" menu box, which means I cannot search for benchmarks :(

 

I've been using the above NGS map for the past 6-8 months, worked great, once I got the PID numbers I would look them up on geo-caching by pasting the PID number to the end of this link http://www.geocaching.com/mark/details.aspx?PID=

 

Anyway, I'm looking for something similar to the NGS map if there's anything out there please post a link.

Thanks for the help guys. The Google earth map its pretty awesome especially with the topographic overlay. The only downside is the lag when loading if you zoom in or move around.

 

After digging a bit more through google search I came across this map also by NGS, which works quite well. The beta map I liked a bit more but this one offers the same ease of use.

You are using the Beta test site, go to the official site----> National Geodetic Survey Data Explorer

Thanks for the links....they allowed me to determine the benchmark that I found last month. I had taken pictures but was unsure of how to find out exactly what benchmark it was. Again, thanks for the links, they helped alot!
