Abstract:
The Primary Vertical Bench Marks, Canada, Level 1 (PVBMC1) are (approximately 80000) monuments established about every 2 km along major highways and railways across Canada. Elevations issued by the Geodetic Survey Division (GSD) are those based on the 1928 adjustment of the national levelling networks Canadian Geodetic Vertical Datum 1928 (CGVD28). The data format of the PVBM1 information could be GML (ASCII) or SHAPE. PVBM1 information includes geographic and UTM coordinates, orthometric elevation, marker information description, and inspection data.The primary vertical bench marks are designed to serve as a fundamental vertical reference frame for spatial positioning in Canada (the geodetic Canadian Spatial Reference System - CSRS).
