Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1983 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1983 16.6 KM (10.3 MI) NE FROM TUBA CITY. 16.6 KM (10.3 MI) NORTHEASTERLY ALONG U.S. HIGHWAY 160 FROM ITS JUNCTION WITH STATE HIGHWAY 264 IN TUBA CITY, 0.6 KM (0.35 MI) NORTHEAST OF A SIDE ROAD LEADING SOUTHEAST, 101.5 METERS (333.0 FT) NORTHEAST OF MILEPOST 332, AND 60.7 METERS (199.1 FT) NORTHWEST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE HIGHWAY. NOTE=REFUSAL WAS REACHED AT 8.0 FEET. ACCESS TO THE DATUM POINT IS THROUGH A 5-INCH LOGO CAP. THE MARK IS 0.3 METERS NW FROM A WITNESS POST AND FENCE THE MARK IS ABOVE LEVEL WITH THE HIGHWAY.

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 June 1991.
  • 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.
