Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1994 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1994 20.1 KM (12.50 MI) SOUTHERLY ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 87 (ARIZONA AVENUE) FROM THE JUNCTION OF U.S. HIGHWAY 60 IN MESA, THENCE 9.5 KM (5.90 MI) SOUTHERLY ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 587, THENCE 8.5 KM (5.30 MI) WESTERLY ALONG CASA BLANCA ROAD, 27.2 M (89.2 FT) SOUTH OF THE ROAD CENTERLINE, 5.2 M (17.1 FT) EAST OF THE CENTER OF FIELD ROAD, 1.2 M (3.9 FT) NORTH OF A UTILITY POLE WITH 1 GUY CABLE, 0.5 M (1.6 FT) BELOW THE LEVEL OF CASA BLANCA ROAD, AND 0.3 M (1.0 FT) EAST OF A WITNESS POST. NOTE--ACCESS TO THE DATUM POINT IS THROUGH A 5-INCH LOGO CAP.

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 August 1994.
  • 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.
