I have an excel file that I have to make the join with another table that has a column listed of different kind of feature types. This was done by someone else who did gps'ed and spell that word and handed it out to me to do the spatial join with a point layer. What does Stock or Overflow Pit? Is it related to geography or geomorphology term? Is there another word that is similar to it ? I tried to google it but with no luck. I looked it up on the image on the google to find it and still have no luck. Would someone out there helped me what they are or what does it look like?

I am not sure if this is the right for in the Education .

Thanks !

check out the location on google earth or arcgis earth and see what it there... that would provide the best clue.  Could be near a drill site, a septic holding take, a fish pond, but it is obviously nomenclature specific to something... never heard of it associated with geomorph though

Yes you were  close. I had to ask my co-worker to check on that information and he was telling me about it. Actually I use either ArcGIS Earth and Google Earth a few places and they are hard to see because those areas are southeastern Colorado and Southwest Kansas. I will probably need to check some places to see.. I might need to check DigitalGlobe EV webhosting to see that as well.
