Approx. 58 feet from original coordinates. None of the original descriptions apply to todays landscape. I will take a photo if I can get authorization.

Note: I only found this after I figured out what the footprint of the "control tower" was. A helpful site for this is: http://www.elivermore.com/photos/Hist_lvr_naval_air2.htm

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  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.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.
