Abstract

The Public Land Survey System (PLSS), also known as the Rectangular Survey System, is a method of dividing land into rectangular parcels. The system began in 1785 in Ohio, and was further established by the General Land Office (GLO), an independent agency of the U.S. Government, during the 19th century.
