Stopped by and checked on this benchmark location while doing a nearby geocache. Benchmark recovered in good condition.

Station recovered as described in good condition with the following description update. The railroad tracks and appurtenances have been removed, and the former railroad property is now owned by the Northwest Ohio Rails To Trails Association (NORTA).

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in April 1998.
  • The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a high-resolution geoid model.
  • The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The ellipsoidal height was determined by GPS observations and is referenced to NAD 83.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
