I'm generally opposed to centerline descriptions, but... aside from that debate... I was taught to use "Point of Termination" for the endpoint of a centerline description.  The company that I'm at uses "Point of Ending."  I'm throwing this out there to hear other opinions.... so.... fire away...

 

Thanks.

Both are clear and unambiguous, use whichever you like. 

"I was always taught..." needs a "because..." to back it up for it to be a compelling reason to oppose a different way of doing things.

Let's add one more, just for the confusion factor - " ;thence >>>>> (and) being the terminus of this description."

follow up, I asked a buddy of mine, and his response was "Termination" because it gives reverence to "Terminus," the Roman god of boundary markers...
