I am a little late in logging this mark. We recieved this benchmark NO. 368 for the 2006 Benchmark Contest as 3rd prize! So, it is indeed destroyed but we have it at home to show everyone what one looks like and prove we did a lot of logs and found lots of Old marks to win it.

Thank you 4leafclover for allowing us the chance of being an owner of a former NGS included mark. It even came with the surveyors paper with the details of where it had been, Coordinates and Elevation and now with an X on it and "OUT 2 - 2006". WAY COOL!

P.S. To anyone who wants to see this mark to see what one looks like out of its surroundings and log it as destroyed...just ask and we will be more than happy to show it to you.

I currently have this disk in my possession. Given to me after the surveyor's office removed it from its setting.

On to be some one's "prize"....

recovered as described. unfortunately, had no gps, or camera with me.

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.
