LOT with Craig W

We found it! What fun to come up to Omak Mountain. We look at it every day from our house and watch it carefully every spring because you can't plant your garden until the snow is off Omak Mountain! It's only taken us 32 years to get up here!

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in December 1991.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)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.
