I continue to say this today, however I found a problem.
The southwest corner of Section 4, Township 2 North, Range 4 East is noted on GDAC as an aluminum cap.
I have been to this corner several times and it has always been a 5/8" rebar with a smashed cap.
Big deal it checks and fits well with everything around it.
I have been working on a lot that the description commences on that corner then runs north 580 feet +/-. Actually every lot around there does the same thing.
Me being the diligent monkey that I am I shoot the section corner and go north 580 feet and what do I find? I find an aluminum cap stamped section corner.
Now here is my question:
What kind of crack was the crew chief smoking when he went to cap that rebar?
This person actually had to walk about a quarter of a mile and 200 vertical feet to cap a point that is no where near the proper location to which that cap belongs.
Now here is another kicker. That 580' point is called out on the GDAC interactive map and hits awesome for xyz.
Things like this are always a chuckle.
Thanks erroneous crew chief for the good belly laugh!!
This is honestly the first time I have ever found a real problem with any GDAC info.
Keep up the great work MCDOT.
Make it a great week surveyors.
