        abstract:  The NGS Absolute Gravity data (78 stations) was received in July 1993. Principal gravity parameters include Gravity Value, Uncertainty, and Vertical Gradient. The data are randomly spaced worldwide.
        purpose:  To provide easy access to global and regional gravity data and related models for scientific studies.

            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  Vertical accuracy varies from source contributor to source contributor. However, vertical positions are usually taken from topographic maps of the area being surveyed, monumented benchmark locations, or they are determined by the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS). Accuracy may range from meters to centimeters or better.
