+Black Dog Trackers Posted May 30, 2005 Share Posted May 30, 2005 I was looking through the benchmark gallery recently and saw a bunch of 'closeup' pictures of benchmarks. Most were pictures of just the benchmark disk, but some had the GPS receiver in the view. In most of those pictures, the benchmark inscriptions could not be read. I think it's better to take a closeup picture of the disk as close as your camera can manage and still get the entire disk in view. It is very important to see the inscriptions on the disk as well as the condition of it, especially in the central area. Attempting to make sure the GPS receiver is in the view detracts significantly from the quality of the closeup photograph the benchmark. If the PID is a horizontally SCALED mark, enter your coordinates when you do the logging. If the PID is a horizontally ADJUSTED mark, what your GPS says about the location is unimportant. In either case, a picture of the GPS unit and what it says is not needed. Quote Link to comment
