This is on the corner of my parent's property. The farm where I grew up.
Buried in deep grass, but an easy find, especially when there is a bright pink stick marking the spot.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in October 1999.
  • The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a high-resolution geoid model.
  • 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.
