Got to love this BM as it is at eye level in a very prominent train station that hundreds of people pass by each day

Refind for benchmarking Poker Fun Run

Stopped by to look for this BM while waiting for my lunch order at Hop Hing to be ready. Got there just as a train was pulling in (pic 1). BM is as described. Took some cell pics.

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. WARNING-Repeat measurements at this control monument indicate possible vertical movement.
  • This Tidal Bench Mark is designated as VM 7432 by the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services.
  • 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.
