GPS Waypoints for Lake Buchanan:
Submitted by David Guercio
GPS Waypoints start at the dam and work up the lake.
In the vicinity of Lake Buchanan 1 minute latitude equals about 1.15 statute miles (5280 feet) or 1.01 nautical miles (6000 feet) and 1 minute longitude equals about .99 statute miles or 0.87 nautical miles. Therefore, one tenth of a minute is about 600 feet and one hundreth of a minute is about 60 feet in either latitude or longitude. The points indicated here should be within about 60 feet of actual points on the ground. This is roughly the same as the estimated position error (EPE) available from the GPS system.
The points are generally in the water, just off of the topographical feature indicated. The GPS Waypoints will help you know where you are on the lake.
Extreme CAUTION should be used when navigating to the points. USE THIS INFORMATION AT YOUR OWN RISK!
