The six corrections applied by the National Geodetic Survey to precise leveling observatons are de- scribed.

These corrections are applied to observed leveling data to minimize the effects of known systematic errors. The rod scale correction ensures a uniform scale which conforms to the National length standard.

More information on corrections above may be found in NOAA Technical Memorandum NOS “Corrections Applied By The National Geodetic Survey To Precise Leveling Observations”. The orthometric correction referred to in NOS NGS 34 was used for NGVD 29 but not for N and it is not based on observed gravity.

However, it has not yet been demonstrated whether these surface displacements should be accounted for at the time of reduction of the observations or by applying time‐averaged values to the coordinates after the analysis of the by: Collecting GPS Observations. In addition to recommending surveyors with survey-grade GPS receivers to perform GPS observations on bench marks, NGS encourages geocachers or anyone with Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled phones or hand held devices to help improve the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) by collecting GPS observations at geodetic bench marks with SCALED.

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS), formerly the United States Survey of the Coast (–), United States Coast Survey (–), and United States Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) (–), is a United States federal agency that defines and manages a national coordinate system, providing the foundation for transportation and communication; mapping and charting; and a large.

The precise orbit is calculated after the fact by several analysis centers around the world (the National Geodetic Survey has its own analysis center located in Silver Spring, MD).

A combination of the precise orbits yield a global precise called the IGS orbit and is good to less than 2 cm. Geodetic data comprise the results of geodetic surveys to determine, among other things, latitude, longitude, height, scale, and orientation control.

This data contains a set of geodetic control stations maintained by the National Geodetic Survey. Each geodetic control station in this dataset has either a precise Latitude/Longitude used for horizontal control or a precise Orthometric Height used for vertical control, or both.

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) serves as the Nation's depository for geodetic data. The World Geodetic System (WGS) is a standard for use in cartography, geodesy, and satellite navigation including standard includes the definition of the coordinate system's fundamental and derived constants, the ellipsoidal (normal) Earth Gravitational Model (EGM), a description of the associated World Magnetic Model (WMM), and a current list of local datum transformations.

Differential leveling, conceptually a simple procedure, in practice lends itself to many types of small errors. To detect, reduce, and control these errors, specific procedures need to be adhered to and corrections must be applied.

FGCS has documented the necessary procedures to be used in first- second- and third-order geodetic leveling projects. National(Geodetic(Survey(Benchmarks–(((The$following$is$NGS$documentation$thatshouldhelpexplainthereasonsfor$ additional$NDSWC$attribution$in$the File Size: KB.

Recognizing the growing reliance of a wide range of scientific and societal endeavors on infrastructure for precise geodesy, and recognizing geodetic infrastructure as a shared national resource, this book provides an independent assessment of the benefits provided by geodetic observations and networks, as well as a plan for the future.The National Geodetic Survey's "Geodetic Glossary" defines trigonometric leveling as "determining differences of elevation by observing vertical angles and measuring straight-line distances between points." In the past, these two measurements were made .convenience or a very precise value determined after lengthy studies.

The standard reference datum used throughout California is mean sea level, based on the National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD ).

Three methods used to measure differences in elevation are direct vertical measurement, trigonometric leveling, and differential leveling.
