Description:
Abstract:
PLSS_CadNSDI_BLM_IN.GDB is is an Esri file geodatabse of the Public Land Survery System (PLSS) for Indiana, as provided by personnel of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The Cadastral National Spatial Data Infrastructure (CadNSDI) Survey Program of the BLM provides the official boundary surveys of all federal-interest lands in the United States, which is over 700 million acres, nationwide. The PLSS is the foundation for many survey-based geographic information systems.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by the BLM for the source file geodatabase named named "IN_CadNSDI_V2.GDB":

"The CADNSDI or the Cadastral Publication Data Standard is the cadastral data component of the NSDI. This is the publication guideline for cadastral data that is intended to provide a common format and structure and content for cadastral information that can be made available across jurisdictional boundaries, providing a consistent and uniform cadastral data to meet business need that includes connections to the source information from the data stewards. The data stewards determine which data are published and should be contacted for any questions on data content or for additional information. The cadastral publication data is data provided by cadastral data producers in a standard form on a regular basis. Cadastral publication data has two primary components, land parcel data and cadastral reference data. It is important to recognize that the publication data are not the same as the operation and maintenance or production data. The production data is structured to optimize maintenance processes, is integrated with internal agency operations and contains much more detail than the publication data. The publication data is a subset of the more complete production data and is reformatted to meet a national standard so data can be integrated across jurisdictional boundaries and be presented in a consistent and standard form nationally."

Purpose:
PLSS_CadNSDI_BLM_IN.GDB was produced to create a seemless version of the Public Land Survery System, at the federal level. The BLM reformatted PLSS data supplied by the Indiana Geological Survey to meet a national standard of data that can be integrated across jurisdictional boundaries. The Esri file geodatabase structure of PLSS_CadNSDI_BLM_IN.GDB is representative of the BLM standardization of the PLSS for the entire country, and is considered the official boundary of all federal-interest lands in the United States.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by the BLM for the source file geodatabase named named "IN_CadNSDI_V2.GDB":

"This data set represents the GIS Version of the Public Land Survey System including both rectangular and non-rectangular surveys. The metadata describes the lineage, sources and production methods for the data content. The definitions and structure of this data is compliant with FGDC Cadastral Data Content Standards and Guidelines for publication.

"This data set is optimized for data publication and sharing rather than for specific "production" or operation and maintenance. This data set includes the following: PLSS Fully Intersected (all of the PLSS feature at the atomic or smallest polygon level), PLSS Townships, First Divisions and Second Divisions (the hierarchical break down of the PLSS Rectangular surveys) PLSS Special surveys (non rectangular components of the PLSS) Meandered Water, Corners and Conflicted Areas (known areas of gaps or overlaps between Townships or state boundaries). The Entity-Attribute section of this metadata describes these components in greater detail.

"This data set was derived from a predecessor coverage named "IN_LANDSURVEY." IN_LANDSURVEY is a digital representation of land survey features as represented on the USGS 1:24,000 digital raster graphic (DRG) series."

Supplemental_Information:
PLSS_CadNSDI_BLM_IN.GDB was produced to create a seemless version of the Public Land Survery System (PLSS) at the federal level. The BLM reformatted PLSS data supplied by the Indiana Geological Survey to meet a national standard of data that can be integrated across jurisdictional boundaries. It contains three feature datasets named "CadastralReference," "CadastralReferenceLocal," and "Parcels." "CadastralReferenceLocal" and "Parcels" feature datasets contain no data but are retained in order to replicate the Esri file geodatabase data structure at the federal level at the request of BLM personnel.

The feature dataset named "CadastralReference" contains ten file geodatabase feature classes named "ConflictedAreas," "MeanderedWater," "MetadataGlance," "PLSSFirstDivision," "PLSSIntersected," "PLSSPoint," "PLSSSecondDivision," "PLSSSpecialSurvey," "PLSSTownship," and "SurveySystem." Of these ten, the following feature datasets contain no data but are retained in order to replicate the Esri file geodatabase data structure at the federal level at the request of BLM personnel: "ConflictedAreas," "PLSSPoint," "PLSSSecondDivision," and "PLSSSpecialSurvey."

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
An Esri file geodatabase named "IN_CadNSDI_V2.GDB" was provided to the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) from BLM personnel on June 9, 2014. It was then reprojected to UTM Zone 16 coordinate system, and NAD 1983 vertical datum using Esri ArcCatalog. It was then renamed to "PLSS_CadNSDI_BLM_IN.GDB" in order to conform to the naming conventions of the IGS.
