Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1987 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1987 14.4 KM (8.95 MI) NE FROM MCKENZIE BRIDGE. 14.4 KM (8.95 MI) NORTHEASTERLY ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 126 FROM ITS JUNCTION WITH TAYLOR ROAD IN MCKENZIE BRIDGE, SET VERTICALLY IN THE WEST FACE OF AN EXPODSED AREA OF BEDROCK IN A HIGHWAY CUT, 10.7 M (35.1 FT) EAST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE HIGHWAY, AND 5.5 M (18.0 FT) SOUTH OF THE CENTER OF THE EAST END OF A 4.0 FOOT METAL DRAINAGE PIPE. THE MARK IS 2.9 METERS S FROM A WITNESS POST THE MARK IS 0.9 M ABOVE THE HIGHWAY.

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.
