6_WPrtdesc.exe – run this on L266151.dsc and view L266151.prn with Wordpad for final description text. 7_WinMakefile.exe – run this on L266151.txt to create the L266151.hgz file 8_WinNewabs.exe – run this program on the L266151.hgz and L266151.dsc . Need to know beginning and ending benchmark and beginning benchmark elevation. This puts the 30 records into the *.hgz file. This creates L266151.abs , an ASCII file to view final results and check for errors 9_Win Readfile.exe – run this on L266151.hgz to get an ASCII file L266151.lst to view final hgz file. Elevations should match preliminary elevations within the misclosure of the level run (these values are not constrained to the ending benchmark at this point in the process). Addendum to Appendix E After first submittal to NGS, several items from the above process were slightly revised to accommodate the submittal of the manual measurements into the NGS database and processing software.

First, NGS requested that all *.dsc files (20 in all; one for each CGPS site) be merged into one file for the whole project. This was accomplished by running 3_WMrgdesc.exe on all 20 files to create one project dsc file, L26615.dsc . Second, NGS requested that a separate ID be given to each possible position of elevation on the CGPS site, the ARD, the GRM and the BPA. This required that additional descriptions for the ARD and BPA be added to the L26615.dsc file (the original idea was to just publish a height on the GRM of each CGPS site). To avoid confusion and possible duplication of point numbers, each ARD was assigned the same point number as the GRM, but with an increase of 200 and each BPA was given an increase of 100 over the GRM. For example, the GRM for VTIS was previously assigned number 7013, so the ARD was assigned 7213 and the BPA was assigned 7113. This convention was held for all 20 sites. The new descriptions were created in 4_WDesc.exe by selecting the dsc file for the GRM and creating a copy to edit for the ARD and then repeating the process for the BPA. NGS also wanted to better account for the manual measurements to the GRM and BPA from the ARD (which was the only position established by leveling). They created a new “instrument” code to be added to the inst.dat file which is used to create the *.hgz file for processing the level run. The following example shows the inst.dat file used to process the CGPS site level files. It includes a line for the NA3003 (in this example) and one for the steel rule used for the manual measurements: 000010*20*24391716 LEICA NA3003 JOHFRA 000000100 000020*20*200RULE1 UNSPECIFIED STEEL/MM-CF JOHFRA 030000000 After this process was completed, NGS had us add extra *15 record lines to the L266151.txt files to explain the manual measurements for each site and some additional *40 record lines that utilized the new *20 record for the steel rule. The following example shows the edited L266151.txt file for VTIS incorporating these additional records (additional data lines highlighted in red): *A1*VERTOBS CSRC CALIFORNIA SPATIAL REFERENCE CENTER 20040610 *10*L26615 1 2003090320030903MM8.0 22CALA MSPJOHFRA 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
