Geodetic Survey Coordinates to Support Global Positioning System Tests at Yuma Proving Grounds Arizona
DEFENSE MAPPING AGENCY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
Geodetic and GEOCEIVER surveys were performed by Defense Mapping Agency personnel at Yuma Proving Grounds Arizona to support positioning requirements for Global Positioning System tests and evaluation. Geodetic field surveys began in November 1974 and ended in February 1975. GEOCEIVER surveys were conducted in March and April of 1975. Upon completion of these surveys, computations were made to determine Adjusted NAD 27 and WGS 72 geodetic coordinates for selected survey sites. Yuma local rectangular as well as Universal Transverse Mercator grid coordinates are also provided.
