Found this benchmark today, it's right in front of the old WVKS 92.5 fm radio station. The elevation stamped is 623.632 and my GPS eventually settled down and I got 622.

  • 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.
