My second benchmark

It is about time that someone added better coordinates for this one.

Found with kason while caching in Corpus.

found when looking for uncivil war

I didnt complete "Civil War" but at least I found a benchmark. I usually file NGS reports for my finds, but since I'm out of my own area, I'll omit this one.

wooohooo..another benchmark for me to cross off the ol' list!

Found it!

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in December 1997.
  • 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.
