Dear 100 Hour Board,
I just got a new bike computer that does everything but make toast. One of the features is an altimeter, so it can show me my elevation gain. The altimeter is basically a barometer, from which it infers the altitude. That means I need to calibrate it. Is there a surveyed point on campus or nearby where we know the exact altitude? The closest I can get so far is an estimate of about 1410 meters at the library.
