Geodetic Mark Recovery Reporting

Geodetic Mark Reports are to be submitted to the Cooperative Charting Committee, not directly to NGS. Use the submittal form found at the link at the bottom of this page. A member of the Cooperative Charting Committee will review the form and, if approved, submit the data to NGS.

Before starting to fill the form, have the following information readily available:

Time Expended (in hours) spent in preparing, traveling, time on site for each mark, returning and anticipated time in reporting. Example: If you prepare from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM, leave for the Geo mark site(s) at 11:00 AM and return at 5:00 PM and report from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the time expended is 9 hours. If there are one or more additional Observers, the time is still 9 hours.
