The Public Land Survey Editing map organizes control points and the public land survey system (townships, sections, aliquot divisions and special surveys) in a fabric data model that can be maintained with the ArcGIS for Desktop Parcel Editor toolbar.
It is an editing map that can be used by mapping technicians in a Natural Resources department, Forest Management department, Land Management Office, or any other agency responsible for managing the Public Land Survey System (PLSS).
The Public Land Survey Editing map also includes a toolset that can be used to publish a series of PLSS layers in the Cadastral National Spatial Data Infrastructure (CadNSDI) data format. These publication layers can also be used as a foundation for tax mapping and other boundary inventories in local and state government agencies.
