Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1972 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1972 (LFS) THE STATION IS LOCATED AT ALBUQURQUE AIRPORT. IT IS ON THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE PARKING APRON FOR AIRCRAFT. THE TERMINAL BUILDING ALL ROADS AND PARKING LOTS IN THE AREA ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THIS TIME. AFTER COMPLETION THE STATION WILL BE JUST TO THE RIGHT AND BEHIND THE TERMINAL BUILDING WHEN APROCHING THE AIRPORT. THE STATION MARK IS A STANDARD DISK STAMPED, KIRTLAND 3 1972. IT IS SET IN A DRILL HOLE 22 FEET EAST OF THE WEST END OF THE PARKING STRIP, 14 FEET SOUTH OF THE NORTH EDGE OF THE STRIP AND FLUSH WITH THE PAVEMENT. REFERENCE MARK 6 IS A STANDARD DISK STAMPED, KIRTLAND 3 NO 6 1972. IT IS SET IN A DRILL HOLE AT THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE APRON WHICH IS 9 FEET SOUTHEAST OF A FENCE CORNER. REFERENCE MARK 7 IS A STANDARD DISK STAMPED, KIRTLAND 3 NO 7 1972. IT IS SET IN A DRILL HOLE 1 FOOT SOUTH OF THE NORTH EDGE OF THE PARKING STRIP, 6 FEET SOUTH OF A FENCE LINE AND 39 FEET EAST OF THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE APRON. AIRPORT AMAFCA 1969 SERVES FOR AN AZIMUTH MARK, SEE DESCRIPTION THEREOF. HEIGHT OF LIGHT ABOVE STATION MARK 1.5 METERS.

Control Text

  • This mark is at Albuquerque Int''l Airport (ABQ)
  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in December 1993. No horizontal observational check was made to the station.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
