Excerpt from Centennial Celebration of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1916

The exhibit, held in the New National Museum, was a comprehensive display of the various types of instruments used in the Operations of the Survey, ranging from historic examples of apparatus designed and used by Hassler and Bache to the latest forms employed at the present day. Notable features were astronomical, geodetic, tidal, topographic, and hydrographic apparatus which owe their origin to the Survey and were constructed in its workshops.

The manifold experiences of the field parties of the Bureau under the various conditions encountered in the field of operations, extending from the Arctic Ocean to the southern limits of the Philippine Archi pelago, were illustrated by prints from photographs made in the field.

The progress of the developments that has marked the improvements in surveying results between 1816 and 1916 was graphically shown by comparison of field sheets and by published charts from various periods.
