To reach the tidal bench marks, from Honolulu International Airport take the
Nimitz Highway (Route 92) east approximately 8 km (5 mi) to Pier 4, the 14th
U.S. Coast Guard District.  Nimitz Highway turns into Ala Moana Road
approximately three-fourths of the way to the tide station.  The tide station is
in a concrete block building at the end of Pier 4, and the bench marks are
around building and in the vicinity.

Mean Sea Level (MSL) is a tidal datum determined over a 19-year National
Tidal Datum Epoch.  It pertains to local mean sea level and should not be
confused with any other fixed island datum.

This tide station location has a local island datum.  Island datums
are specific fixed geodetic datums whose elevation relationship to local MSL
and other tidal datums may not be consistent from one location to another.

The Vertical Mark Number (VM#) and PID# shown on the bench mark sheet are unique
identifiers for bench marks in the tidal and geodetic databases, respectively.
Each bench mark in either database has a single, unique VM# and/or PID# assigned.
Where both VM# and PID# are indicated, both tidal and geodetic elevations are
available for the bench mark listed.
