yeah, you'd think that while i was out here digging in the snow somebody might have come out to tell me where it was. it's not like nobody knows where it is.

You're on your way to climbing the walls (ok, at Petra Cliffs), what do you do? That's right, stop for a few last benchmarks!

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in September 1997.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in January 1997.
  • 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.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
