This seminar will examine the United States Public Lands, their extent and how the government acquired them. Covered in detail will be the forming of the land system by Thomas Jefferson and his committee. It will also cover the system of survey contracts and the surveyors that walked the land. You will understand the instructions for field operations and why modern survey distances differ from historic records. The seminar also contains actual maps and diagrams of government surveys along with information on equipment used to complete this survey. You will learn to appreciate how these original surveys became the basis for every modern resurvey - a must for anyone dealing in land boundaries. Pictures and information on governmental land office (GLO) locations and staff related to Alabama will also be part of this seminar. The final part will deal with accuracy of original surveys and the relationship to modern survey equipment. If you work in a GLO state, this seminar is a must for the Professional Surveyor.
