Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1926 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
01/01/1941 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1941 6 MI SW FROM CROOK. ABOUT 6 MILES SOUTHWEST ALONG THE UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD FROM CROOK, 3-1/2 POLES EAST OF MILEPOST 36, AT THE CROSSING OF A NORTH-AND-SOUTH ROAD, 46.9 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTH RAIL, 32.8 FEET EAST OF THE ROAD, 33.5 FEET NORTH OF AN OLD HIGHWAY, AND 2.3 FEET EAST OF A POINT 1.7 FEET NORTH OF A FENCE CORNER. A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED 3754.766 J 16 1926 AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 4 INCHES ABOVE GROUND.
01/01/1986 by NGS (GOOD)
RECOVERY NOTE BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1986 RECOVERED IN GOOD CONDITION. THE 1941 DESCRIPTION IS ADEQUATE EXCEPT ADD--1 BLOCK SOUTH ALONG A DIRT STREET FROM THE POST OFFICE IN ILIFF, 0.3 METER (1 FT) NORTH OF A FENCE LINE. THE MARK IS 0.3 METERS NW FROM A WITNESS POST

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.
