Found on a warm, Sunday afternoon. Nice seeing you again, Abe!

This is to confirm that this one is still there. Can be seen from across the street even.

DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1969 AT BLOOMINGTON. AT BLOOMINGTON, SET VERTICALLY IN THE EAST FACE AND 2.4 FEET NORTH OF THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE EAST WING OF THE MCLEAN COUNTY COURTHOUSE, 32 FEET NORTH OF THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE MAIN PART OF THE COURTHOUSE, 92 1/2 FEET WEST OF THE CENTER LINE OF N.

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.
  • 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.
