Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1954 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1954 1.1 MI SE FROM NORMALVILLE. ABOUT 1.1 MILES SOUTHEAST ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 381 FROM THE JUNCTION OF STATE HIGHWAY 711 AT NORMALVILLE, IN THE TOP OF THE NORTH END OF THE WEST CONCRETE WALL OF A 2 1/2 BY 3 1/2-FOOT DROP INLET OF A 15-INCH PIPE CULVERT UNDER HIGHWAY, 16 FEET EAST OF CENTER LINE OF HIGHWAY AND ABOUT LEVEL WITH HIGHWAY.

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.
