Authors: Dustin Holt
Government land office surveys (GLO’S) are part of the official record of the cadastral or rectangular survey system throughout the American West and played a major role in the development of the United States and tribal lands.

This presentation covers: acquiring, organizing, and using GLO’s in a modern tribal GIS office.
