Our Public Land Survey is a seamless, high-resolution database of Congressional Survey townships and sections that is ideal for base maps and plotting land ownership and leases. Public Land Survey is offered as either USGS PLSS digitized from USGS 1:24,000 series topographic maps, or BLM GCDB PLSS land grid format. For the USGS derived product, DDS used a highly accurate spatial averaging digitizing technique, which captures corner boundaries to +/- 40 foot accuracies. The USGS Public Land Survey (also known as PLSS, Digital Land Grid, or Digitized Section, Township and Range) precisely overlays.
Tabular attributes include meridian, township, range, and section numbers. The Public Land Survey (also known as PLSS, Digital Land Grid, or Digitized Section, Township and Range) precisely overlays Natural Color Aerial Photography as well as the USGS United States Topographic Maps, making it useful for indexing and analysis.
