DESCRIBED BY US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY 1957 2.2 MI E FROM CONNEAUT. 2.2 MILES EAST ALONG THE NEW YORK CENTRAL RAILROAD FROM THE STATION AT CONNEAUT, ASHTABULA COUNTY, OHIO, 32 YARDS NORTHEAST OF THE PENNSYLVANIA-OHIO STATE LINE-MARKER, AT A DIRT ROAD CROSSING, 17 YARDS EAST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE ROAD, 13 YARDS NORTH OF THE NORTH RAIL OF THE NORTH TRACK, AND 1 FOOT LOWER THAN THE TOP OF THE RAIL. A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED W13 1934 AND 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 1992. * This is a POSTED BENCH MARK height. Code C indicates a distribution rate of 2.1 thru 3.0 mm/km.
  • 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.
