Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1958 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1958 0.7 MI SE FROM PORTSMOUTH. ABOUT 0.7 MILES SOUTHEAS ALONG THE NORFOLK AND WESTERN RAILWAY FROM THE STATION AT PORTSMOUTH, SET IN THE TOP OF THE WEST END OF THE SOUTH HEADWALL OF THE RAILWAY OVERPASS OVER OFFNERE STREET, 30 FEET SOUTH OF SOUTH RAIL OF THE SOUTH TRACK, 1 FOOT EAST OF THE WEST END OF THE ABUTMENT, ABOUT 1 1/2 FEET ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE TRACK.

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.
