This Land Records Meetup was the first meetup in a serie dedicated to the US Public Land Survey System (PLSS).


Mineral surveys including lodes, mill sites, government patents, and remaining aliquot parts and government lots combine to form complicated parcel geometry. At one time real estate speculators would offer the apparent or real slivers of land remaining between patented lands as an investment opportunity.  Understanding the compilation of these surveys will help local, state and federal agencies build public lands and tax parcel data sets.
