Documented History (by the NGS)

1/1/1903 by USGS (MONUMENTED)
1/1/1957 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1957 AT MIDDLEBOURNE. AT MIDDLEBOURNE, AT THE COUNTY COURT HOUSE, SET VERTICALLY IN THE WEST FACE OF BASEMENT WINDOW LEDGE TO JAILERS QUARTERS, 7 1/2 FEET SOUTH OF NORTHWEST CORNER OF BUILDING, 3 FEET ABOVE GROUND AND ABOUT 10 FEET ABOVE LEVEL OF STATE HIGHWAY 18.

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.
