DESCRIBED BY NORTH CAROLINA GEODETIC SURVEY 1999 (WLL) STATION IS LOCATED ABOUT 10.3 MI (16.6 KM) SOUTH OF RALEIGH AND 3.1 MI (5.0 KM) SOUTHEAST OF MCCULLERS. ALONG NC-50 FOR 5.2 MI (8.4 KM) SOUTH FROM US-70, IN GARNER, TO SR 1010 THENCE WEST ALONG SR 1010 FOR 1.6 MI (2.6 KM) TO SR 2727, THENCE SOUTH ALONG SR 2727 FOR 0.65 MI (1.05 KM) TO JUNIPER BABTIST CHURCH AND STATION ACROSS RD NEAR OLD ABANDONED SCHOOL. MARK IS ABOUT 3-FEET LOWER THAN SR 2727 AND FLUSH WITH THE GROUND. LOCATED 73.2 FT (22.3 M) EAST OF THE CENTERLINE OF SR 2727, 2.6 FT (0.8 M) WEST OF THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE ABANDONED SCHOOL, AND 86.2 FT (26.3 M) NORTH OF STATION JUNIPER.

Control Text

  • The North Carolina/South Carolina HARNS have been completed but, due to contractual restrictions, coordinates for these stations will NOT be published in the near future. In the interim, the published coordinates in North and South Carolina will not be consistent with the Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS). The HARN coordinates for these stations are available upon request. Contact Gary Thompson(919-733-3836), or Lewis Lapine(803-896-7700). In addition, the published North and South Carolina positions (NAD 83 (1986)) are NOT consistent with those determined in adjacent state readjustments. The discontinuity between stations located in North or South Carolina and those in adjacent states which have been adjusted to the HARN may be as much as 5 decimeters. This will result in a significant loss of accuracy over lines crossing such state borders.
  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 2000.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling. The vertical network tie was performed by a horz. field party for horz. obs reductions. Reset procedures were used to establish the elevation.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
