Thought I'd logged this one last time through this area but guess not. didn't get to totally uncover it or get the exact cords because a barking dog was bearing down on me with no understanding of my need for data. But, this is it. Fits the description very well as in the front yard of the only really nearby farm house.

DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1959 5.2 MI SE FROM LE ROY. ABOUT 4.95 MILES SOUTHEAST ALONG THE NEW YORK CENTRAL RAILROAD FROM THE STATION AT LE ROY, THENCE 0.25 MILES NORTH ALONG A GRAVEL ROAD, AT A DRIVEWAY WEST TO A FARM HOUSE, 20 FEET WEST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE ROAD, 2 FEET EAST OF A FENCE, 113 1/2 FEET SOUTH OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE DRIVEWAY, 94 FEET SOUTH OF A POWER POLE WITH A TRANSFORMER, 1.4 FEET EAST OF A METAL WITNESS POST, ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE ROAD, SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 3 INCHES.

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.
