A DICTIONARY OF -ALTITUDES IN THE UNITED STATES. 

(Fourth edition.) 



By HENRY GANNETT. 



INTRODUCTORY NOTE. 

This edition is greatly enlarged over earlier ones, mainly by the 
addition of altitudes determined by railroads and of bench marks 
of this and other Government organizations. Owing to the fact 
that many railroads have changed their alignments and grades in 
recent years, thus changing the heights of their stations, a general 
attempt was made to obtain new profiles for use in this edition, and 
the attempt has been in great part successful. This course has made 
necessary a readjustment of the profiles and has caused many 
changes of greater or less magnitude in the heights of stations. 

DESCRIPTION OF AUTHORITIES. 

The following is a descriptive list of the authorities from which the 
altitudes used in the dictionary have been derived, together with a 
brief account of the methods employed and such notes as will 
enable one at all conversant with the methods of determination of 
heights to form some idea of the accuracy to be expected from the 
figures given. 

ADIRONDACK SURVEY. 

The determinations credited to this survey are from the Trig- 
onometric and State Land Survey of New York, under Mr. Verplanck 
Colvin. Most of the determinations were made by barometer. 
Some, however, were determined by trigonometric methods and by 
level. They are all located within the Adirondack region. 

APPALACHIAN CLUB. 

Most of the determinations credited to this source have been com- 
piled from "Appalachia." They are barometric determinations, or 
at least depend upon barometric bases.

b DICTIONARY OF ALTITUDES IN UNITED STATES. 

BAILEY, MAJ. G. E. 

An extfeii^irejist pf 'altitudes in California, compiled by Maj. G. E. 
Biiloy, was* courteously furnished to this office. Most of the alti- 
tudes compiled by him have been obtained from original sources, but 
a considerable number remains credited to him as authority, because 
the original authority has not been obtainable. 

BOUNDARY COMMISSION. 

The second survey of the boundary between the United States and 
Mexico. The altitudes were determined by level and stadia. 

CHAMBERLAIN. 

Under this heading are included altitudes determined by a surve} 7 
of the town lines of Massachusetts. These altitudes are trigo- 
nometric. 

CITY ENGINEER AND CITY SURVEYOR. 

In cities where the different railroads occupy separate stations an 
extensive correspondence has been had with the city engineers and 
surveyors for the purpose of obtaining the relative heights of the 
tracks at the various stations. In this way relative heights were 
obtained in 550 cities and towns, including the principal railway 
centers of the country. Incidentally, the elevations of city datum 
points and other altitudes within the cities were obtained. 

EASTMAN. 

These results are from barometric work and from observations 
upon the boiling point of water. 

EMORY, w. H. 

These consist of barometric determinations abstracted from a 
Report of Explorations from Fort Leavenworth to San Diego, 1846. 
(Thirtieth Congress, first session, Senate document.) 

FREMONT. 

These are barometric determinations compiled from reports of 
the various expeditions of Fremont in the West. Owing to the 
want of a barometric base they are, in general, of poor quality. 

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF NEW YORK (G. 8. OF N. Y.). 

These elevations are of barometric determination. 

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF VERMONT (G. S. OF VT.). 

All elevations credited to this authority are from barometric 
determinations. 



DESCRIPTION OF AUTHORITIES. 



GODDARD. 



These determinations are by level from preliminary railroad surveys 
made by the Central Pacific Railroad Company of California. Like 
all preliminary work, they are not in the highest degree reliable. 

GUYOT. 

Nearly all the elevations given under this authority are in the 
Appalachian region, and were determined by barometer. They are of 
the highest character of this class of work. Most of the figures have 
been compiled from Professor Guyot's articles in the American 
Journal of Science and Arts. 

HAYDEN, DR. F. V. 

Under this authority is given all work done by the United States 
Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories. All deter- 
minations are barometric or trigonometric resting on barometric 
bases. 

IVES, LIEUT. J. C. 

Report of Colorado Exploring Expedition (Thirty-sixth Congress, 
first session, Senate document). All determinations are barometric. 

JENNEY, PROF. WILLIAM P. 

These heights were abstracted from the Atlas of the Black Hills. 
All determinations are barometric. 

JONES, CAPT. W. A. 

Report of Expedition to Northwestern Wyoming and the Yellow- 
stone Park, 1873. All determinations are barometric. 

KING, CLARENCE. 

This reference is mainly to the work of the Geological Exploration 
of the Fortieth Parallel. All determinations are barometric or 
depend upon barometric bases. 

MASSACHUSETTS TRIGONOMETRIC SURVEY (MASS. TRIG. SURVEY). 

This includes altitudes of stations determined trigonometrically 
by a survey under the charge of Mr. Simeon Borden. 

MEXICAN BOUNDARY SURVEY. 

The altitudes given under this heading were determined by 
barometer by the first survey of the boundary. 

MINNESOTA GEOLOGICAL AND NATURAL HISTORY SURVEY (MINN. 

STATE SURVEY). 
These elevations were, in the main, determined by aneroid. 



8 DICTIONARY OF ALTITUDES IN UNITED STATES. 

MISSISSIPPI RIVER COMMISSION (MISS. RIVER COM.). 

These elevations were determined by lines of precise leveling, which 
extend up the river from near its mouth to St. Paul, across to Lake 
Superior at Duluth, and to Lake Michigan at Chicago. 

MISSOURI RIVER COMMISSION (MO. RIVER COM.). 

These elevations were determined by a line of precise leveling 
which extends up the river from its mouth to the three forks in 
Montana. 

MULLAN, CAPT. JOHN. 

Explorations for a Wagon Road from Walla Walla to Fort Benton, 
1862. All heights were determined barometrically. 

NEW JERSEY GEOLOGICAL SURVEY (N. J. G. S.). 

Elevations given under this head were determined by lines of accu- 
rate leveling carried on in connection with the preparation of the map 
of the State. 

NEW YORK STATE SURVEY. 

These altitudes, consisting mainly of the heights of triangulation 
stations, were determined by refined trigonometric work. 

NORTHERN TRANSCONTINENTAL SURVEY (N. TRANS. SURVEY). 

These altitudes, chiefly from barometric work, were executed by 
the Northern Pacific Railway Company. 

PACIFIC RAILROAD REPORTS (p. R. R. REPORTS). 

Under this authority is included work done by the War Depart- 
ment between 1850 and 1855, for the purpose of finding a practicable 
railroad route from the Missouri River to the Pacific. 

All the wo/k is barometric and, taken as a whole, is poor, owing 
mainly to the fact that practically there were no barometric base 
stations. The hypsometric work of the expedition near the northern 
boundary, under Governor Stevens, was particularly bad. These 
remarks concerning the quality of the work apply as well to all the 
earlier expeditions to the West, owing doubtless to the same cause. 

PARRY, PROF. C. C. 

These elevations were determined barometrically. 

POWELL, MAJ. J. W. 

To this authority is credited the hypsometric work of the United 
States Geological Survey of the Rocky Mountain Region. The 
determinations were, made by the use of the barometer or by vertical 
angles depending upon bases determined by the barometer. 



DESCRIPTION OF AUTHORITIES. 9 

RAILROADS. 

The elevations determined by railroad levels are credited to the 
roads by which they were furnished. 

On pages 12-19 will be found a list of these railroads, with the 
abbreviations used for their names arranged alphabetically. 

Unless otherwise stated, the elevation is that of the railroad track 
at the station of the road given. In cases where two or more rail- 
roads meet or cross at grade, the elevation furnished by one of them 
only the best determined is given. 

The collection and adjustment of these railroad levels has formed 
by far the greater part of the work of this compilation. There are 
now in the possession of this office abstracts of the profiles of more 
than nine-tenths of the railroad mileage of the country, and all this 
material has been used in the preparation of the present volume. 
For this material, which is of the greatest value in the preparation of 
topographic maps, as well as for other purposes, this office is in the 
main indebted directly to the chief engineers of the various railroad 
companies. 

The interest taken in this compilation by railroad engineers, which 
was noted in earlier editions of this work, has increased and spread, 
until to-day there is scarcely a large railroad corporation which has 
not in its possession a full and consistent profile of all its lines, reduced 
to a common datum point, and these profiles have been courteously 
furnished to this office. Many of them are wonderfully accurate, 
some comparing favorably even with the precise leveling of the 
United States Coast and Geodetic Survey and of the river commis- 
sions. 

The errors due to careless connections between divisions and sec- 
tions of roads, which were mentioned in former editions as a leading 
source of inaccuracy, have been largely eliminated in later profiles. 

Acknowledgment in detail of indebtedness for this material would 
render necessary a list of nearly ah 1 the leading railroad engineers of 
the country, which want of space forbids. 

Besides the profiles received directly from railroad organizations, 
numerous profiles have been obtained from other sources. First 
among these should be mentioned those published by Mr. Warren 
Upham, in Bulletin No. 72 of this Survey, entitled " Altitudes between 
Lake Superior and the Rocky Mountains." While nearly all of these 
profiles had previously been obtained directly from the railroads, 
many of those presented by Mr. Upham have been used, in the belief 
that his adjustment of them is the most consistent possible. 

The adjustment of railroad levels has proved a simpler task than 
at the time of publishing the earlier editions. This is due in great 
part to the fact that many more lines of precise levels have been run,

the results .of which can be absolutely depended upon for accuracy. 
The United States Coast and Geodetic Survey has executed a vast 
amount of leveling of the greatest accuracy, including a line across 
the country from Sandy Hook through St. Louis, Denver, and Ogden 
to Puget Sound. 

The United States Lake Survey and the Mississippi River and 
Missouri River commissions have also made important contributions 
by leveling numerous lines in the Mississippi Valley and about the 
Great Lakes. 

The United States Geological Survey has, in connection with its 
topographic work, carried on extensive leveling operations scattered 
over many different localities in various parts of the country. This 
work, done since the year 1895, has already reached such magnitude 
as to form a very important aid in the adjustment of levels. 

Moreover, as above noted, the railroads have aided greatly in this 
work of adjustment by carefully compiling the levels of their own 
systems, and the elevations given by many of the larger railroad 
companies of the country are nearly or quite as accurate as the pre- 
cise levels above specified and can safely be used as primary lines. 

RAYNOLDS, CAPT. W. F. 

Under this authority are given the hypsometric results of the expe- 
dition of Captain Raynolds to the country about the sources of the 
Snake and Missouri rivers in 1860-61. All the work is barometric. 

SIMPSON, CAPT. J. H. 

Reconnaissance in Navajo Country, 1849 (Thirty-first Congress, 
first session, Senate Document No. 6), and Explorations in the Great 
Basin of Utah, 1859, published in 1876. The elevations were meas- 
ured by barometer. 

UNITED STATES ARMY (u. S. A.). 

Under this heading are given the altitudes of certain army posts, 
determined by barometer. 

UNITED STATES COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY (u. S. C. & G. S.). 

The elevations credited to this source are of two classes one of 
triangulation stations whose heights have been determined by refined 
trigonometric methods, the other of lines of precise leveling referred to 
above. 

UNITED STATES ENGINEER CORPS (ENGINEER CORPS) . 

Elevations given under this authority are the results of precise 
leveling, executed in connection with river and harbor improvements. 



DESCRIPTION OF AUTHORITIES. 11 

UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY (u. 8. G. S.). 

A vast number of elevations are credited to this source. They 
have been determined by various means, but almost entirely by 
trigonometric methods and by level lines. Elevations of mountains, 
hills, and other points used as triangulation stations have, as a rule, 
been determined by trigonometric methods. Elevations of towns, 
railway stations, and the like have commonly been determined by 
spirit leveling, most of which is of sufficient accuracy to be classed as 
precise. Since the year 1895 the leveling operations of this organi- 
zation have been extensive, and the altitudes of great numbers of 
points have been determined. This leveling has been carried on 
wherever surveying for the preparation of maps has been in progress, 
and is therefore scattered widely over the country. 

UNITED STATES LAKE SURVEY (U. S. L. S.). 

Under this heading are given altitudes determined by the United 
States Lake Survey. They include the altitudes of stations in the 
triangulation, determined by trigonometric methods, and the 
results of a line of precise levels from Albany through the Great 
Lakes. 

WATER POWER OF MAINE. 

These elevations were extracted from a State report bearing the 
above title. 

WEATHER BUREAU. 

The elevations credited to this authority are those of its stations, 
meaning thereby the cistern of the barometer, in case that instrument 
is in use. Included here are not only the regular stations, but those 
of the volunteer observers. 

These elevations have been determined by the best means avail- 
able; that is, by connection with lines of precise levels, with rail- 
road levels where practicable, or, in default of these, by barometric 
observations. 

WHEELER, CAPT. GEORGE M. 

To this authority are credited all elevations determined by the 
United States Geographical Surveys West of the One Hundredth 
Meridian. Nearly all the work is either barometric or trigonometric 
depending upon barometric bases. 

WHITNEY, PROF. J. D. 

Under this authority are given elevations determined by the Geo- 
logical Survey of the State of California. All determinations are 
barometric. 

WILLIAMSON, LIEUT. R. S. 

These elevations were determined bv barometer.
