Control Text

  • This mark is at Reading Regional Carl A Spaatz Fld Airport (RDG)
  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in May 1995.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling. The vertical network tie was performed by a horz. field party for horz. obs reductions. Reset procedures were used to establish the elevation.
  • The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The ellipsoidal height was determined by GPS observations and is referenced to NAD 83.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
