Subsets of BLM data were used to generate data for this program. In cases where the data was found to be inconsistent, incompatible, or incorrect, these data sources were ignored. In cases where there is a data discrepancy the official PLSS records should be used. Additionally, certain polygons are algorithmically generated using the outer bounds from the PLSS data set. In all cases, this data is only to be used for informational purposes and cannot and should not be used as an official boundary without a formal survey provided by a professional land surveyor.
