REVITALIZATION OF THE U.S. PUBLIC LAND SURVEY SYSTEM IN SOUTH EASTERN WISCONSIN

THE GROWING NEED TO RECOGNIZE LARGE URBANIZING REGIONS AS PLANNING UNITS REQUIRES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A UNIFIED, AREA WIDE SYSTEM OF SURVEY CONTROL BASED UPON SOUND SURVEYING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES. THE SOUTH-EASTERN WISCONSIN REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION HAS ENCOURAGED THE USE OF A UNIQUE SYSTEM OF SURVEY CONTROL WHICH COMBINES THE BEST FEATURES OF THE U.S. PUBLIC LAND SURVEY AND STATE PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEMS. ONE OF THE VALUABLE BY-PRODUCTS OF THIS SYSTEM IS THE RESTORATION AND REVITALIZATION OF THE U. S. PUBLIC LAND SURVEY SYSTEM. THIS IS THE RESULT OF NOT ONLY THE RELOCATION AND REMONUMENTATION OF THE PUBLIC LAND SURVEY CORNERS THEMSELVES BUT OF THE PLACEMENT OF THESE RELOCATED AND REMONUMENTED CORNERS OF THE STATE PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEM. THE RECOMMENDED UNIFIED SURVEY CONTROL SYSTEM HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED AND WIDELY APPLIED WITHIN SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN; AND APPROXIMATELY 2,165 U. S. PUBLIC LAND SURVEY CORNERS, OR 13 PERCENT OF ALL SUCH CORNERS WITHIN THE SEVEN- COUNTY PLANNING AREA, HAVE BEEN RELOCATED, MONUMENTED, AND COORDINATED OVER A SIX-YEAR PERIOD. /AUTHOR/
