Fuzzy and I were down in OC for some caching and Benchmark spotting.

Name of building has changed again. It's Calvary Chapel Admin Offices. Not to be confused with Calvary Chapel across the street. The mark is behind the building from 8th st.

My first find of Benchmarks or Cache since an ankle injuried sidelined me this past April. Search for this one for about 15 minutes, then corrected my coordinates to those posted by rscarr2 and found it quickly. NEWEST CHANGE: The Enchanted Garden Gift shop that was once the Atlantic City Electric Company Building is NOW The Edward Jones Investment building. Found in good condition today at 14:08 hours.

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 January 2001. WARNING-Repeat measurements at this control monument indicate possible vertical movement.
  • 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. The observed gravity was obtained from relative gravimeter ties to the IGSN71 gravity network.
