Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1982 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1982 18.6 KM (11.55 MI) WEST FROM ASHLAND. 18.6 KM (11.55 MI) WEST ALONG U.S. HIGHWAY 2 FROM THE COURTHOUSE IN ASHLAND, SET NEAR A FENCE AT A ROAD JUNCTION, 40.2 METERS (132.0 FT) SOUTH OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE HIGHWAY, 12.8 METERS (42.0 FT) EAST OF THE CENTER OF TOWNHALL ROAD LEADING SOUTH, 6.7 METERS (22.0 FT) SOUTH OF THE CENTER OF TOWNHALL ROAD LEADING EAST, 0.6 METER (2.0 FT) NORTHEAST OF A CONCRETE FENCE POST, 0.3 METER (1.0 FT) NORTH OF A FENCE. THE MARK IS 0.3 METERS N FROM A WITNESS POST. THE MARK IS 0.3 M ABOVE GRAVEL ROAD.

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.
