Nebraska Revised Statute 76-2503

Chapter 76 Section 2503

76-2503.

Plane coordinate values.

The plane coordinate values for a point on the earth's surface used to express the geographic position or location of such point of this system shall consist of two distances expressed in meters and decimals of a meter when using the Nebraska Plane Coordinate System. One of the distances, to be known as the "northing" or "N", shall give the position in a north-and-south direction. The other, to be known as the "easting" or "E", shall give the position in an east-and-west direction. These coordinates shall be made to depend upon and conform to plane rectangular coordinate values for the monumented horizontal control stations of the North American National Geodetic Horizontal Network as published by the National Ocean Service/National Geodetic Survey, or its successors, and whose plane coordinates have been computed based on the system described in the Nebraska Plane Coordinate System Act. Any such station may be used for establishing a survey connection to the Nebraska Plane Coordinate System.
