A survey point is a triangulation pillar, geodetic vertex, or other piece of fixed equipment used by topographers. An example of these are DGPS radio stations. These points are normally in a fixed location and of a known altitude used for the old fashioned surveying.

See also Wikipedia-16px.png Triangulation station and Wikipedia-16px.png Benchmark (surveying).

How to map

Add a node at the location of the trig point and use the man_made=survey_point. You can also add a name using name=*, its bracket number with ref=*, and its elevation using ele=* (mind the height reference system!).
