There are billions of federal computer records that relate to the millions of acres of "public lands" in the United States. These records are administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). In the late 1990s, a publicly funded effort was undertaken to develop a truly modern GIS, in order to help manage the extensive land holdings and data records in the U.S. It is called the National Integrated Land System, or NILS for short. This system is now accessible to the public for on-line searching, viewing, and eventual downloading of selected records. It also can be used to generate custom maps of selected lands. The following article describes NILS in mostly general terms. More detailed papers and articles can be found on the BLM website at
