The Department of Natural Resources began a
Public Land Survey corner database in the early 1990's with information from a
variety of sources including digitizing from USGS quadrangles and other more
precise survey methods. The stewardship of this database was transferred to Mn/DOT
in 1994. The database has gone through transitions since that time and is now
being modified for user access. The platform will be Oracle� and the final
product should be distributed for general use by the end of 2001.
The projected users of the database are public and private-sector land surveyors, GIS personnel or any other person who has a need for information about the Public Land Survey corners.
