For those with Android phones, there is a new benchmarking app available for FREE! It's called "BenchMap" and was developed by an avid benchmark hunter Foxtrot_X-Ray.
From the site: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tsqmadness.bmmaps BenchMap allows searching and viewing of National Geodetic Survey / NGS survey stations on an interactive map. Once a station is selected users can view the datasheet, view the Geocaching page, take photographs and record notes.
On the map, users can filter the types of stations to display, like being limited by stability, horizontal/vertical orders, and destroyed/non-publishable status. Users can also search for a PID, and have the map take them to the location of the station, as well as manually viewing the datasheet of a station.
Users can take photographs of the station, and images can be stored in a simple numbering scheme, or be saved using the NGS's recommended photograph naming convention. Using the naming convention, each station's images are stored in their own folder, along with a notes text file if the user has recorded any recovery notes for the station.
Made for the professional surveyor and the geocache hunter (benchmark hunter!) out there in the wild.
Note that the application will only display NGS survey marks. (No USGS stations or State stations at this time.)
