Horz & Vert Orders..


Recommended Posts

An odd question, but something I've noticed in the datasheets recently. Take for example this sheet (trimmed):

JV7206  PID         -  JV7206
JV7206  COUNTRY     -  US
JV7206                         *CURRENT SURVEY CONTROL

JV7206  -------------------------------------------------------------------
JV7206  NETWORK                                       1.48   1.84
JV7206  -------------------------------------------------------------------
JV7206  MEDIAN LOCAL ACCURACY AND DIST (006 points)   1.48   1.69      6.83
JV7206  -------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that under the Current Survey Control area, there's no mention of a Horizontal Order or a Vertical Order. Does this mean that this station has no order for both those? Seems a little strange considering there's a Network Accuracy section.


Could someone tell me if my assumption's correct, or am I missing something? :)


Cheers -

Did you note the link in the line after your trim of the 'sheet:


The Local and Network Accuracy Data Sheet

Program lna_ret Version 2.5 Date December 3, 2013

National Geodetic Survey, Retrieval Date = JULY 17, 2014

JV7206 ********************************************************************

JV7206 ACCURACIES - Complete network and local accuracy information.


JV7206 PID - JV7206


JV7206 Note that Horiz and Ellip values are accuracies at 95% confidence per

JV7206 the FGDC accuracy standards. The values of SD_N, SD_E and SD_h are the

JV7206 standard deviations (one sigma) of the coordinates (NETWORK) or

JV7206 of the difference in the coordinates (LOCAL) in Latitude, Longitude

JV7206 and Ellipsoid Height. The value CorrNE is the correlation

JV7206 coefficient between the latitude and longitude components of either

JV7206 the coordinate (NETWORK) or coordinate difference (LOCAL). The Dist

JV7206 value is the three-dimensional straight-line slope distance, in km,

JV7206 between station JV7206 and the corresponding Local station. Local

JV7206 stations include any other station, regardless of distance, that

JV7206 has been processed simultaneously with the station, in any project.


JV7206 Statistical information, in cm, follows. Correlation is unitless.
