This bulletin, which for convenience is to be published in eight parts, contains the results of all transit traverse* done In Missouri through 1937 by the Geological Survey, United States Department of the Interior, including those heretofore published. (See page X.) Each of the parts deals with one of eight sections into which the State has been divided for this purpose and which have been designated northeastern, northwestern, southeastern, southwestern, central, east-central, south-central, and west-central Missouri. In each part descriptions of the points for which geodetic positions have been determined are listed according to the quadrangles in which the points occur. Results of transit traverse other than that done by the Geological Survey have not been included.
Northeastern Missouri, as the term is used in this bulletin and as the subject of part 6 of the bulletin, is, as its name indicates, the north-easternmost section of the State. Its north and east boundaries are the boundaries of the State; its west and south boundaries are formed by a line that runs south along longitude 93°15' to latitude 39°30', thence east to longitude 92°00', thence south to latitude 39°15', thence east to the east boundary of the State.
