Quality The locations were captured on three occasions, twice using a Garmin GPS receiver and once using a Magellin GPS receiver. Each point was thus derived from three readings.
By capturing the location of the Geoscience Australia GPS receiver at the station and comparing this data with the latitude and longitude given by Geoscience Australia, Allan concluded his final latitudes and longitudes should be accurate to 0.002 minutes.

Usually mapped to a Universal Transverse Mercator projection, Zone 49.
