Public Land Survey System of Iowa

The Public Land Survey System (PLSS) is a way of subdividing and describing land in the United States. This dataset contains the Townships, Ranges, and Sections of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) in Iowa. Coordinates were digitized from U. S. Geological Survey 7.5' topographic maps (paper copies) using a digitizing program developed in-house by the Geological Survey Bureau, Iowa DNR. The digitizing tablet accuracy was 1/50 inch. Section lines from individual quads were combined and edited. Further subdivisions into Quarter sections (up to 3) were done with an ArcView Script on regular-shaped sections.
