Description:
Abstract:
These circles have a five kilometer radius.
Purpose:
They were used in order to visualize the full coverage that a geodetic survey marker could provide to the park. Using these circles backbone sites could be chosen that were spaced regularly enough and had enough range to cover the entire park.
