Long Description:
The U.S. Army Map Service’s Inter-American Geodetic Survey (IAGS) started a massive triangulation campaign in the Caribbean and most of Latin America.

The triangulation network of Bonaire consists of 35 stations, and all angles were measured with a Wild T-3 theodolite.

The IAGS colocated with stations Grandi, Brandaris, and Will.
