Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1935 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1935 1.8 MI W FROM OROFINO. 1.8 MILES WEST OF, ALONG NORTHERN PACIFIC RY., FROM RY. STATION. TABLET SET HORIZONTALLY IN 14 FT. X 10 FT. 3.5 FT. ROCK BOULDER ON NORTH SIDE OF TRACK AT SLOPE OF PROMINENT ROCKY KNOLL. 75.8 FEET WEST OF MILE POST NO. 27. 26.3 FEET NORTH OF CENTERLINE OF NORTHERN PACIFIC R.R. 10.6 FEET EAST OF WEST EDGE OF ROCK. 4.6 FEET NORTH OF SOUTH EDGE OF ROCK, ABOUT 3 FEET BELOW LEVEL OF TRACK.

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.
