I could not find any trace of this one today.

found as described while visitng family whike the girls went shopping
I deciced to have fun

Recovered and used this benchmark for a survey in the area.

Came by this benchmark several times trying to find a good time to claim it when there wasn't much activity from the nearby homeless shelter. I was only approached by one "local" while taking the photos.

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.
