Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1935 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1935 1.8 MI NW FROM LUMBERPORT. 1.8 MILES NORTHWEST ALONG THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD FROM THE STATION AT LUMBERPORT, HARRISON COUNTY, AT BRIDGE 472, IN THE CENTER OF THE TOP OF THE WEST RETAINING WALL, AND 7 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTH RAIL. A STANDARD DISK, STAMPED G 23 1935.

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.
