Bodie Island Baseline Dedication


Recommended Posts

On Friday, April 11 the North Carolina Geodetic Survey in collaboration with the NC Museum and Preservation Society, the NC Society of Surveyors and the National Park Service will host a dedication for an interpretative site for the Bodie Island Baseline. Observed in 1848 by the Coast Survey under the direction of Alexander Dallas Bache, it is the oldest complete geodetic baseline in the United States. The dedication is scheduled for 11:00am at the parking area approximately 0.15 south on Route 12 from intersection of Rt 64 in Nags Head, NC. The site is approximately 0.3 north of the location of station Bodie Island North Base 1848 (pid EX0456). For additional information see North Carolina Society of Surveyors
