                  gps positioning datum is wgs84 which cosiders d earth as a sphere and based on mean sea level.
                  but local surveys are based on some local reference datum which are different from wgs84. that shift can be calculated and applied aproximately..

                        A sextant is an instrument used
                        to measure the angle between
                        any two visible objects. Its
                        primary use is to determine the
                        angle between a celestial object
                        and the horizon which is known
                        as the object's altitude. Making
                        this measurement is known as
                        sighting the object, shooting the
                        object, or taking a sight and it is
                        an essential part of celestial
                        navigation. The angle, and the
                        time when it was measured, can
                        be used to calculate a position
                        line on a nautical or aeronautical
                        chart.

                                        Chart Datum is an arbitrary plane below which low water tide seldom falls. It is a datum to which sounding on a published hydrographic chart are reduced. All the bathymetric contours are referred to this datum. The tidal predictions and tidal levels given in the tide tables are also given with relation to the same datum. Chart datum in India had been fixed at Indian Spring Low Water Mark (ISLW) during nineteenth century. For this, sufficiently long tidal observations had been made at various locations. During the Spring tide, low water mark had been measured and fixed as chart datum at this location
