You are invited to attend a one-day forum on “Parcel Mapping & the Public Land Survey in Wisconsin”

It is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at UW-Eau Claire’s Alumni Room, 3rd Floor, in the Davies Center.

This forum is free and is intended to address how to improve parcel mapping methods and better utilize the Public Land survey System to improve accuracy. The forum will bring together Wisconsin’s County Surveyors, County Land Information Officers and GIS staff, Real Property Listers, state agency GIS Coordinators, UW faculty and staff, members of the state’s geospatial community, and the general public.

Building on 2015’s successful County Surveying & Parcel Mapping Forum at UW Stevens Point, the 2016 Forum will address the following questions. What are parcels and how are they mapped? :: How and why do parcel mapping methods vary across the state? :: How do jurisdictions share parcel mapping responsibilities? :: What best practices and standards exist for parcel mapping? :: What is the PLSS and what its role in parcel mapping? :: How can PLSS be used to improve parcel map accuracy? :: How can parcel mappers and surveyors work together to improve parcel mapping?
