While taking photos of the Grand Canyon, spotted this benchmark. Railing keeps you from getting very close to survey disc, but most of the disc is readable with magnification of telephoto lens.

Documented History (by the NGS)

1/1/1981 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1981 1.6 KM (1.0 MI) EAST FROM GRAND CANYON VILLAGE. 1.6 KM (1.0 MI) EAST ALONG THE SOUTH ENTRANCE ROAD FROM THE JUNCTION OF THE EAST END OF THE VILLAGE LOOP ROAD AT GRAND CANYON VILLAGE, IN TOP OF A MASSIVE SANDSTONE OUTCROP 3 METERS (10 FT) NORTH OF THE SOUTH END, ON THE WEST EDGE OF A SHALLOW DRY WASH WHICH PARALLELS THE ROAD, ACROSS THE ROAD FROM A STANDARD SERVICE STATION, 0.2 KM (0.1 MI) NORTHEAST OF THE NORTHEAST ENTRANCE TO THE VISTER CENTER, 0.2 KM (0.1 MI) SOUTH OF A POWERLINE CROSSING, 30.5 METERS (100 FT) WEST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE ROAD, 9.5 METERS (31 FT) NORTH OF A 12-INCH PINON TREE, 7.3 METERS (24 FT) WEST OF AND LEVEL WITH THE CENTER OF A TRAIL, 1.8 METERS (6 FT) WEST OF AND 1.5 FEET ABOVE THE CENTER OF A WASH. THE MARK IS 1.1 METERS SE FROM A WITNESS POST. THE MARK IS 1.5 M BELOW THE ROAD.

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 1992. * This is a POSTED BENCH MARK height. Code A indicates a distribution rate of 0.0 thru 1.0 mm/km.
  • 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.
