Abstract:The cadastral survey activities of the United States vary in scope and detail. Cadastral surveys are primarily a function of county governments; there are over 3000 counties in the United States. Most of the cadastral systems are built upon a rectangular survey system, with the exception of the metes and bounds systems in the states of the original thirteen colonial. The Bureau of Land Management has the responsibility for this rectangular survey system and facilitates the creation of a national cadastre.
