Arkansas and Bowen

Although I was unable to find this mark, I think it could be found by someone with a metal detector. The buildings mentioned in the official data sheet are long gone, but the GPS points to a spot in the middle of a vacant lot with a lot of rubble, which seems to indicate that the mark is still here somewhere. It is a field about 75 yards east of the Walgreen's store at Bowen Road and Arkansas Lane. The GPS pointed to a spot about 60 yards south of Arkansas Lane.

The mark is probably still here, but I couldn't see 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 June 1991.
  • 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.
