Benchmark retrieval system
Here you can find the elevation and location of benchmarks (permanent natural or artificial objects) at street/property level, or by postal code, lot block plan, legal land description or benchmark name (e.g. 89-C-041).
This site has some limitations. All benchmark locations are calculated to the centre of a quarter-section based on the Alberta Township Survey. To determine a benchmark's exact field location of a benchmark, use the description on the PDF file. Alberta Government owns these benchmarks, but cannot guarantee that they have been disturbed or destroyed.
