PAUL AND PACIFIC RAILROAD FROM THE STATION SIGN AND GRAIN ELEVATOR AT BROOKS, THENCE 4.2 MILES WEST ALONG A PAVED ROAD, IN SECTION 23, T 17 N, R 17 E, ON THE CREST OF A HILL SLOPING NORTHWESTERLY, 33 FEET NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE ROAD, 27 FEET SOUTHEAST OF A POWER POLE, IN LINE WITH A ROW OF POWER POLES, 9 FEET EAST OF A CORNER FENCE POST, 1.0 FOOT NORTHEAST OF A METAL WITNESS POST, ABOUT LEVEL WITH THE ROAD, AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 6 INCHES.

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.
