Georeference RemarksUsed the georeferencing calculator to determine coordinates and error (distance at a heading) from Michigan Valley (38.681938, -95.528021). However, note that the road cut is likely to the east (2 miles N and 0.5 miles W of Michigan Valley). However, did not move lat-long as could not definitively identify that road cut, and there is a second road towards Overbrook to the west.
