I tried to get an answer to this question before but couldn't get any help. Should I use wgs84 or nad 83. I know it depends on where I get my #s and when but I noticed they don't like to tell you what datum to use when they publish #s. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am another surveyor to tell you it does not matter. Use either one and you will be close. Its as close as you can get short of me loading gps equipment on your boat and @ 30,000 It is never going near the water.
