Two words or one?
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)
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)
