Geodetic Control Points

The City of Elizabethton's Engineering Department manages a network of sixty-one (61) high order control monuments. Six monuments are of horizontal order B and vertical order B. Fifty-five monuments are of horizontal order C class 1, vertical order C class 2.  With the exception of station GPS 5 and GPS 6, each monument is intervisible with at least one other monument. Excluding GPS 1, each monument is a 3-1/2" inch diameter bronze disc (see photograph to the right) GPS Monument-Bronze Discstamped with an ID number which corresponds with the station number at the top of the station reports. 
The control point station reports include horizontal and vertical data, to reach descriptions, vicinity maps, reference diagrams and location photos.  We have made all of the control point station reports available to the public by selecting one of the following links:
