Timiskaming had to be accurately surveyed. Earlier surveys by Quebec and Ontario resulted in a boundary dispute, so the Canadian government sent a survey team to resolve the issue in 1890. William Ogilvie (William Ogilvie (surveyor)), who had recently distinguished himself by accurately surveying the Canada - Alaska boundary, led the expedition. A benchmark (Benchmark (surveying)) near Mattawa (Mattawa, Ontario) was used to establish an accurate benchmark north of Lake Timiskaming, using

astronomical methods. From the head of Lake Timiskaming, they proceeded north to James Bay, fixing accurate positions of the provincial boundary at regular intervals using geodesy data derived from star transits. Ogilvie's journal describe conditions in this area and the early settlers he met. His report on this expedition describes the details of this expedition.
