Control Point Generated Public Land Survey (PLS)

The Control Point Generated PLS layer contains line and polygon features to the 1/4 of 1/4 PLS section (approximately 40 acres) and government lot level. The layer was created using the most accurate information available at the time, including Government Land Office plat drawings and survey notes, official resurveys, and PLS control points from MNDNR's Control Point Inventory database.<br/><br/>For the details about the creation of the PLS layer to the forty/government lot, refer to the documentation that comes with the downloaded data:<br/><a href="">pls40glotpyMetadata.pdf</a> for the polygons, and<br/><a href="">pls40glotlnMetadata.pdf</a> for the lines.
