PLSS, cadastral, standards

Utah PLSS Monument Preservation Program

The Utah State Surveyor, Sean Fernandez, has developed a story map that describes Utah’s PLSS corner recovery and remonumentation program and how this program has contributed additional control to the statewide PLSS data set. The Story Map illustrates County programs and the added control.

PLSS Data Sets Available

BLM Cadastral Survey, the FGDC Cadastral Subcommittee, Premier Data Services, and Fairview Industries, have teamed over the past four years to complete the standardized PLSS data for nearly all of the 30 Public Domain states. Oklahoma is the only state waiting to be completed and it is in process. These data sets represent about 40 million parcels that provide the basis for parcel mapping, land governance decisions, and navigation of cadastral data in Public Domain states.
