Welcome to the City of Gresham’s Control Points GIS map. The City has developed a network of horizontal and vertical control monuments throughout the city to support surveying, engineering, construction, mapping, GIS and facilities management activities.

Engineers, surveyors, planners and other consultants working on public improvements are required to georeference their work to the City's vertical and horizontal datum.

  • The horizontal datum is Oregon State Plane Coordinates, North Zone, being NAD83(91), in International Feet.
  • The vertical datum is NGVD29, in US Survey Feet.

This web application displays the main control point’s location and its spatial information.
