Third mark found in Ramsey within 20 minutes. Very easy to spot.

Looks like Bank of America is the new First National Bank. Easy find of the benchmark right by the bank's doorstep.

Tried looking for this by coordinates and went past it (GPS had me 158' southeast). Looked at this one and didn't realize until I read the original info that I had found it. Fun time. I have looked at this one for about the past 30 years.

This was an easy find. I didn't need my GPS. Benchmark in good condition.

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.
