DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1961 1.05 MI S FROM BROOKS. ABOUT 1.05 MILES SOUTH ALONG THE CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE, ST. PAUL AND PACIFIC RAILROAD FROM THE FARMERS UNION GRAIN ELEVATOR AT BROOKS, IN SECTION 34, T 17 N, R 18 E, 15 RAILS NORTH OF A WOODEN TRESTLE, 14 RAILS NORTH OF MILEPOST 10, 46 FEET EAST OF THE EAST RAIL, 2 FEET WEST OF A FENCE, 1.2 FEET WEST OF A METAL WITNESS POST, ABOUT 4 FEET BELOW THE LEVEL OF THE TRACK, AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 10 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.
