USGS Datasheets

These are links to USGS datasheets I have collected and scanned over the years. They are by no means complete and the marks described are in many cases considered obsolete for purposes of survey control. However, they are great resources for survey mark hunters!

If you have more USGS datasheets that you would like to share, please post a comment.

  1. Zhanna, have you tried to get USGS to scan & put online its own datasheets? I have tried to get Kari Craun, former Director of the U.S. Geological Survey, National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) to do so but to no avail. Similar with Juliana Blackwell, NGS director, for NGS to scan its collection of the USGS datasheets.
    I can offer the datasheets scanned by the Rolla USGS office for the eastern states, some of which you already have.
    Would you be inclined to write to Deb Haaland, Secretary of Interior, requesting this service? I just did so, have not heard back.
    I retired from NGS in 2013 after 23 years. Still looking for control marks.
