Description:
Abstract:
These are proposed locations of high quality, hjgh stability benchmarks for Cape Cod National Seashore.These sites were chosen based on elevation, tree cover, view of horizon, and location in relation to the backbone sites. There were two gaps when the backbone sites were picked and these two sites filled in coverage for that area. They were identified after field visits to the Cape and after consultation with Mark Adams, head GIS analyst for Cape Cod National Seashore.
Purpose:
To show places where new monuments should be installed in order to provide full coverage to the national park. Just a general placement of the point and not the exact location of the future monument. No exisitng basestations occur in these locations therefore new monuments need to be installed. These monuments were identified to fill in gaps of basestation coverage using the 5KM radius circles.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The point for the Pochet House was taken during a field visit with GPS. The Marconi Island point was placed in the area to mark the spot and the exact location of the new monument will be determined at a later date.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No tests for logical consistency were conducted.
