Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1959 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1959 2 MI N FROM FARMER CITY. ABOUT 1.95 MILES NORTH ALONG U.S. HIGHWAY 54 FROM ITS JUNCTION WITH U.S. HIGHWAY 150 IN FARMER CITY, AT AN EAST-WEST ROAD CROSSING, 36 1/2 FEET EAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE HIGHWAY, 38 FEET SOUTH OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE GRAVEL ROAD, 46 FEET SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER OF THE JUNCTION, 1 FOOT WEST OF A FENCE, 12 1/2 FEET SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF A FENCE CORNER, 1.9 FEET NORTH-NORTHWEST OF A METAL WITNESS POST, ABOUT 1 1/2 FEET BELOW THE LEVEL OF THE HIGHWAY, 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.
