Documented History (by the NGS)

Unknown by CGS (MONUMENTED)

DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1939 AT DENVER. AT DENVER, DENVER COUNTY, AT THE INTERSECTION OF WEST THIRTY-SECOND AVENUE AND LOWELL BOULEVARD, AT A FIRE HYDRANT, AND IN THE TOP OF THE NORTH CURB OF WEST THIRTY-SECOND AVENUE. A METAL RIVET. NOTE-- PREVIOUSLY DESIGNATED AS BM 6 A.

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 1992. No vertical observational check was made to the station. * This is a POSTED BENCH MARK height. Code NC indicates the bench mark was located on a no-check spur therefore a value was not computed.
  • 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.
