Documented History (by the NGS)

1/1/1942 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1942 1 MI S FROM FLATBROOKVILLE. 0.3 MILE SOUTHWEST ALONG A BLACK TOP ROAD FROM THE POST OFFICE AT FLATBROOKVILLE, THENCE 0.7 MILE SOUTH ALONG A GRAVEL ROAD, AT AN INTERSECTION OF MILLBROOK ROAD AND THE MIDDLEVILLE ROAD, 58 FEET EAST OF THE SOUTH CORNER OF A LARGE 2-STORY FARMHOUSE, 35 FEET NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF ROADS AT THE POINT OF INTERSECTION, AND 2 FEET SOUTHWEST OF A STANDARD REFERENCE POST. A STANDARD DISK, SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE 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.
