Recovered the benchmark and both reference marks. The benchmark was in a shallow hole next to the sidewalk to the lawyer offices. Reference mark 1, set in the concrete curb in the median strip of Settlers Landing Rd, has been badly worn by traffic and has had most of the lettering scraped off. Ref mark 2 is in good condition.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in April 1996.
  • The orthometric height was scaled from a topographic map.
  • 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.
