Station Mark

Station Mark

 

in geodesy, a structure set up at triangulation stations. A station mark consists of two parts—one aboveground and the other underground. The mark fixes the position of the triangulation station and may also be used to mount a geodetic instrument at a height that ensures direct viewing of nearby station marks.
