To whom it may concern:

I have been having this problem for a while now, and it is really affecting data collection in the field.  The standard projection used is NAD27, however WGS 84 is also used. 

I have re projected the data vice versa and they are not a match at all.  The data is off by by exactly 12 feet and that is too large a number for me based on the type of work done in the field.

There was a discussion amongst collegues that georeferencing using a control station ( i thought it was control point from what i understand) is the way to go.  What does the person mean by referencing using a control station?
