Geodetic DatumWGS84
Georeference RemarksLat-long and uncertainty from MaNIS georeferencing calculator for distance at a heading. Named place extent is half the distance to the nearest named place (Fortyone Tank -watering hole, USGS topo map view). Note that lat-long is actually in Pecos county, not Brewster county as is written in on loc card. Changed county to Pecos.
