Notes
 The RTK GPS base station for this SWATH Bathymetry survey is called "WCMG"
 An NAD83(CORS96) (Epoch 2002.0000) coordinate for "WCMG" was obtained using the average of 10 independent OPUS solutions (observeded in April/May 2010).
  
 Source Point Name: "WCMG-2002-001"
 Coordinate System: NAD83(NSRS2007)
 Datum: NAD83 (National Spatial Reference System 2007)
 Date: 1/1/2002
 Source_epoch: 2010.6301369863
 Ellipsoid: GRS 1980
    Semi-major axis(meters): 6378137.00000000
    Semi-minor axis(meters): 6356752.31414036
    Eccentricity: 0.08181919104281582
    Inverse Flattening: 298.257222101
 Vertical Reference: Ellipsoidal Height
 
 Geodetic latitude (Degree): N 36 57 32.03817
 Geodetic longitude (Degree): W 122 03 19.32478
 Ellipsoidal height (Meter): 4.138
  
 This average coordinate was transformed to an ITRF00 (WGS84[G1150]), Epoch 2010-230 coordinate (SWATH survey date) using the software program "Geographic Calculator" from Blue Marble Geographics.
 The output file "bmg-WCMG-NAD83-ITRF00-2010-230.txt" uploaded to this Basecamp project contains the transformation information.
  
 These ITRF00 coordinate values were used to program the RTK GPS base.
