Notes
 S910SF   The writeboard named "Corte Madera survey control (CM01; RTK GPS base station)" has been created by Tom Reiss:
 
    The following information pertains to the GPS base station
    "CM01" used for the SWATH bathymetry survey at Corte
    Madera (San Francisco Bay, CA), March 2010.
 
    The base station was programmed using the following coordinates: (see
    also "CM01-base-setup.JPG")
    Reference Frame: WGS84 (G1150)
    Epoch: 2010.0630
    Latitude: N 37 54' 51.37721"
    Longitude: W 122 29' 13.21809"
    Ellipsoid Height: 88.829m
 
    The average values for the derived OPUS solutions for
    "CM01" are:
    Reference Frame: ITRF00 [same as WGS84 (G1150)]
    Epoch: 2010.1532
    Latitude: N 37 54' 51.37819"
    Longitude: W 122 29' 13.21786"
    Ellipsoid Height: 88.780m
 
    The differences to be added to the RTK broadcast locations are:
    Latitude: +0.00098"
    Longitude: -0.00023"
    Ellipsoid Height: -0.049m
 
    Using UTM coordinates as a comparison:
    The base station was programmed using the following coordinates:
    Reference Frame: NAD83, UTM zone 10
    Epoch: 2002.0000
    Northing: 4196426.796m
    Easting: 545093.600m
    Ellipsoid Height: 89.359m
    Orthometric Height: 121.700m (based Geoid09)
 
    The average values for the derived OPUS solutions for
    "CM01" are:
    Reference Frame: NAD83, UTM zone 10
    Epoch: 2002.0000
    Northing: 4196426.825m
    Easting: 545093.607m
    Ellipsoid Height: 89.310m
    Orthometric Height: 121.651m (based Geoid09)
 
    The differences to be added to the RTK broadcast locations are:
    Northing: +0.029m
    Easting: +0.007m
    Ellipsoid Height: -0.049m
    Orthometric Height: -0.049m
