America’s Boating Club Houston promotes the Geodetic Mark Program in coordination with NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) by reporting status on geodetic markers in the Greater Houston Metroplex area.
This is our first ever geodetic marker activity!
The Squadron will do this activity as a family unit to have some fun, complete a public service, and enjoy the activity in your neighborhood area. All information about where and how to locate a marker, then document the effort, will be provided via email (if you register) and a teleconference (Friday, May 29, 2020) on how to use the software and hints-and-kinks on finding and documenting a mark. Information on the teleconference and the program will be sent via email to those registered.
The Squadron has two kits (for loan) with all the items you would need to search for, locate and collect documentation; and information on these items will be provided to those registered. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Lt./C Amy Taylor.
There will be another Squadron-level event on Geodetic Survey Markers in October, 2020. Check out the calendar for for more information and registration.
