Documented History (by the NGS)

Unknown by CGS (MONUMENTED)
1/1/1962 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1962 AT BERNARD. 0.1 MILE NORTHEAST ALONG ROAD TO HIGGINS WHARF (FORMERLY C.H. RICE COMPANY), 330 FEET NORTH OF THE CENTER OF THE ROAD LEADING TO THE WHARF AND 150 FEET NORTH OF TIDAL 3 (1911). THE MARK IS THE CENTER OF A CROSS CUT IN THE TOP OF A LARGE ROCK LEDGE JUST EAST OF THE HIGH WATER LINE, SOUTH OF A SMALL BOAT MARINE RAILWAY AND 1.3 FEET EAST OF A LARGE RING BOLT IN THE ROCK. NOTE-- THE LEDGE IS AN ISLAND AT HIGH TIDE.

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.
