Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1985 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1985 12.9 KM (8.0 MI) WEST FROM GREEN BAY. 12.9 KM (8.0 MI) WESTERLY ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 54 FROM ITS JUNCTION WITH U.S. HIGHWAY 41 IN GREEN BAY, 36.5 M (119.8 FT) SOUTH OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE HIGHWAY, 13.5 M (44.3 FT) EAST OF THE CENTER OF VAN BOXTEL ROAD, AND 8.5 M (27.9 FT) SOUTH OF A FENCE CORNER. NOTE--ACCESS TO DATUM POINT IS HAD THROUGH A 5-INCH LOGO CAP. THE MARK IS 0.3 METERS W FROM A WITNESS POST AND FENCE THE MARK IS 0.3 M BELOW THE ROAD.

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.
