Final Report, 2018 Surveying-Parcel Forum

Report on a free public forum entitled, “Meet Me at the Corner,” hosted by the Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office and the PLSS Work Group on April 25, 2018, in Rotschild, WI. The event was a sequel to three earlier forums: 2015 in Stevens Point, 2016 in Eau Claire, and 2017 in Wisconsin Dells. The overall goal of the forums is to facilitate dialog about how to align surveying and parcel mapping activities in Wisconsin to improve accuracy and reliability, and to bring the GIS and Surveying communities together to identify and discuss common interests. The 2018 forum focused specifically on the PLSS corner maintenance process and included a field trip to a buried PLSS corner under the guidance of the Marathon County Surveyor.
