A structure on top of a hill, usually coloured black and white, used as a physical reference point by surveyors to determine location. The symbol shown on the map includes the elevation and trig identification code for beaconed trig stations.
These topographic trig points are derived from New Zealand geodetic marks data which can also be accessed through the LINZ Data Service: NZ Geodetic Marks and NZ Geodetic Vertical Marks.
