DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1968 2.5 MI E FROM FOSTORIA. ABOUT 2.5 MILES EAST ALONG THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD FROM THE STATION AT FOSTORIA, AT MILEPOLE NO. 34-16, 56 FEET NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER OF THE CROSSING OF YOCHUM ROAD NO. 47 AND THE WESTBOUND TRACK, 52.9 FEET NORTH OF THE NORTH RAIL OF THE WESTBOUND TRACK, 20 FEET EAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE ROAD, 2.7 FEET EAST OF THE SOUTH LEG OF A STEEL POWER LINE TOWER, 1.2 FEET SOUTH OF A METAL WITNESS POST, ABOUT 4 FEET BELOW THE LEVEL OF THE TRACK AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 2 INCHES ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE GROUND. NOTE-- THE 1954 DESCRIPTION REPORTS THE MARK AS PROJECTING 4 INCHES.

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.
