I couldn't find this benchmark but I may be back to look again. It seems that I may have been looking on the wrong side of the tracks, really it was the only place that a wall (cinderblock not brick) was.

Did not find this one.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
