Right of Way Plat and Commissioner's Graphic Order - Raster Image File Footprints, Minnesota

The Right of Way Plat and Commissioner's Graphic Orders footprints layer is a statewide data set. The footprints are constructed from the scanned right of way plat images (raster data) that were georeferenced using the Department of Natural Resource's Control Point Generated Public Land Survey Coverage (vector data), MnDOT's Statewide Basemap (vector data), and other reference data sets as necessary to support the positioning of the images.

dsCurrentRef The highway right of way plat and graphic commissioner's order documents are used as the basis for the footprints. The outer border of the document's electronic file image defines the footprint's shape. MnDOT's Office of Land Management LIS and Right of Way Mapping Unit intermittently geo-references and footprints batches of these documents and they become finalized by the Office's Platting Unit. This collection may not include recently completed plat or order footprints and is dependent upon work schedules and the available resources that are required to update the data set.

dsPurpose The data set was created to enhance the accessibility to right of way plats by enabling the use of spatial indexing tools. Georeferencing right of way plats is helping to assist the transition toward a more automated land information system. Footprints are created to represent the extent of the Plats and have the advantage of shortening load time.
