DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1963 (JCC) THE STATION IS LOCATED ABOUT 35 MILES EAST-NORTHEAST OF KALISPELL, 20 MILES SOUTHWEST OF EAST GLACIER AND 22 MILES SOUTHEAST OF WEST GLACIER ON SCALPLOCK MOUNTAIN. THE STATION WAS REACHED BY HELICOPTER. THE STATION MARK IS A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED SCALPLOCK 1963, SET IN A DRILL HOLE IN BEDROCK ABOUT 10 INCHES BELOW THE GROUND SURFACE. IT IS ON THE SOUTHWEST EDGE OF THE PEAK, 22 FEET SOUTHWEST OF THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE SCALPLOCK LOOKOUT HOUSE AND 12.5 FEET WEST OF THE WEST SIDE OF A SMALL FENCED ENCLOSURE. REFERENCE MARK 1 IS A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED SCALPLOCK NO 1 1963, SET IN A DRILL HOLE IN OUTCROPPING BEDROCK. IT IS ON THE SOUTH EDGE OF THE PEAK AND 12 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE ENCLOSURE AND ABOUT THE SAME ELEVATION AS THE STATION.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in July 1992.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
