|Not sure about the benchmark idea though we are not ruling it out. However we do like to try and blaze our own trail and not follow down the same one that already is in place. If we can offer something different or perhaps a feel of it's own then ya never know! |
I wonder if this thread qualifies for an award for the length of time between starting it, and the first replies?
I did find details for over 6000 triangulation points, and things called Passive Stations, which the Ordnance Survey maintain for checking the accuracy of GPS units used professionally. In fact, there's one just up the road from me!
Most of them are easily reachable, whereas the old Trig Point pillars are often on private land, on top of hills, or in muddy fields. Which makes getting to them a little more fun, as you are never sure what sort of trek you might have to make to get to them.
Anyone interested in the URLs for the sites with the details of Trig Points and OS Passive Stations?
