Data Location


It does not seem that federal / national government has a database... The Bureau of Land Management has a pretty antiquated website that does not have a great cadastre survey page. There is a company that sells parcel-level data, and a client they note is the government. The state of Montana has a pretty good cadastre map and Oregon something similar but I don’t think there is a national map that has all the aggregated cadastre maps.

We have not identified any references indicating that US has a unified land survey system.
