Two words or one?[edit]

I have changed bench mark to benchmark throughout merely for consistency with the title (and the Concise Oxford Dictionary). However, the Ordnance Survey (and Collins Dictionary) spells this as two words.--Shantavira|feed me 18:06, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

"fixed point"[edit]

The disambiguation page for the term "fixed point" suggests that this page will explain the term fixed point as used in the context of surveying. Anyone want to take a crack at that, either here or on a new page named "fixed point (surveying)"? Once that's done I can point Geodetic network and Meridian arc, which currently points out to the fixed point disambiguation page, to wherever the explanation ends up. Thanks! --Joe Decker (talk) 05:58, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
