Anybody attending SotM should have heard Steve Chilton in "Map Room 101" and
me, talking about those big chunks of rock in the middle of nowhere that are
used by topographers as points of reference. For those who didn't attend
SotM, have a looky at the photos here:
Call them triangulation pillars, call them geodetic vertices, call them how
you like. Fact is, I'm gonna upload a few thousand of them in a couple of
So, I'm proposing the following tags to be applied on nodes:
geodesy = pillar
Depicts a geodetic (or geodesic) pillar
geodesy:network = foobar
Several pillars together form a geodetic network, which usually has a name.
geodesy:reference = 1234
Pillars in the same network are identified by a reference number.
So, any comments on this?
