pinpoint

A precisely identified point, especially on the ground, that locates a very small target. A reference point for a rendezvous, such as one's position. It may be determined by direct observation, the use of navigational aids, or plotting a fix. In plotting, a pinpoint is indicated by the symbol image—a circle with a dot in it along with the time noted beside it.
