Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1958 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1958 2.4 MI SE FROM PORTSMOUTH. ABOUT 2.4 MILES SOUTHEAST ALONG THE NORFOLK AND WESTERN RAILWAY FROM THE STATION AT PORTSMOUTH, ABOUT 0.1 MILE EAST OF MILE POST N 605, SET VERTICALLY IN THE SOUTH FACE OF THE NORTH CONCRETE PIER UNDER A PEDESTIAN OVERPASS OVER THE TRACKS TO THE RAILWAY REPAIR SHOP, 38 FEET NORTH AND ACROSS A SIDE TRACK FROM THE NORTH RAIL OF THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD TRACK, 1 1/2 FEET EAST OF THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE PIER, 2 1/2 FEET ABOVE THE GROUND, ABOUT 2 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.
