Found in good condition, the mark is near a fence with dirt roads on each side of it and a considerable amount of construction to the east. This is a 1915 USGLO cap set on a pipe in concrete and is a closing corner for the New Mexico PLSS upon the TX-NM border. Found very close to dark or a little after, but was able to walk right up to it.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in February 1996. No horizontal observational check was made to the station.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)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.
