Thanks, Brian. I learned some things worth knowing.

If you still bike the NCR trail there are some nice bolt in chiseled square marks near the PA/MD border, JV1534 , for example.

I asked Christine if the webinar would be archived for those, like me, who missed it.

 

She says it will be on the "Recorded Webinars" tab on this web-page: http://www.ngs.noaa....webinar_series/

 

That page seems to have other topics of interest, such as a February presentation on "GPS Observations on Bench Marks"

Mike-

Glad you were able to dial in - I found it very interesting and useful as well. I was actually pleased to find that I knew a lot about datasheets already just from having used them for benchmark hunting for the past 8 years or so.

I ride the NCR trail every now and then and have found a few of those marks. I may be on the trail later this week for a round-trip to York (if I get motivated enough) and may try to grab a few that I've missed.

Brian

You beat me to it! I was going to check this week to see if the presentation was posted yet - at the end of the webinar they said it would take a week or so.

Glad you found and posted it and I'll check out some of the other topics as well.

Regards-

Brian
