Benchmark Info




The County of Mathews has created this page to assist Surveyors, Engineers, RDP’s, Contractors and all interested parties.


The County has a number of documents to assist with horizontal and vertical datum.


Note: the current FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) are based on the 1988NAVD.
