VERT ORDER SECOND CLASS I


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 in July 2007.

No vertical observational check was made to the station.

The geoid height was determined by GEOID09.

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.
