Except, they call them "PIERS" here in Canada.

Might I suggest the Winnipeg GPS Validation Network (GCR627) multi?

My cache a Provincial Moment was where I found my first Geodadic Marker. I found the hassle involved in submitting these was almost unbearable so I will not be doing anymore...

The benchmarks in the link above are actually the pillar type if I remember correctly. These were used in the now-archived locationless cache Canadian Base Network.

The link in the other post here was also the basis for a locationless cache for gravity stations but I can't remember the cache name.
