IN GRANITE CITY. IN GRANITE CITY, AT THE U.S. ARMY CORPS ENGINEERS LOCK NUMBER 27 NEAR THE SOUTH COUNER OF THE UPPER INTERMEDIATE CONTROL BUILDING, BETWEEN THE TWO LOCKS, 47.55 METERS (156.0 FEET) SOUTHEAST OF THE SOUTHCORNER OF THE BUILDING, 1.12 METERS (3.7 FEET) NORTHWEST OF THE NORTHWEST EDGE OF THE SOUTHEAST LOCK CHANNEL. THE MARK IS ABOVE LEVEL WITH TOP OF LOCK.
- 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.
