The Datum of the majority of the City of Sacramento benchmarks is the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) and was based upon a plane datum with reference to four U.S. Government monuments.   Only these four monuments served as the basis for the City’s NGVD Datum. These monuments are as follows:

  1. 297-C3D,
  2. 297-C3E,
  3. 297-D3B, and
  4. 297-D4B, as described in the City's benchmark database.

Some North American Vertical Datum 1988 (NAVD 88) differential baselines have been conducted and the elevations of those benchmarks have been included and identified in this database.

Any problems or suggestions regarding the elevations or descriptions of benchmarks contained in this database can be directed to the Supervising Surveyor at 916-808-8777.
