The coordinates are right on the money. GPSr at 3 FT. The written description needs a little help though. The distance from the road is actually from the "Old Road". It is approximately 150 Ft. East from the white line of the highway to the mark. It is also about 12 Ft West from the ROW fence.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 1993.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)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.
