Disk in front of building

My first benchmark! What an unusual place for one. Little did I know I'd find one on the side of a building later in the day!

Yes, this one is where it is supposed to be... Only problem is the railroad tracks that I was going to use for a reference are gone.... Ok, all that means is another U turn... Got it. I will post pictures later.

very nice

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 May 1994.
  • 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.
