Government Surveys

Cadastral surveying is the sub-field of  cadastre  and surveying that specializes in the establishment and re-establishment of real property boundaries. It is an important component of the legal creation of properties. A cadastral surveyor must apply both the spatial-measurement principles of general surveying and legal principles such as respect of neighboring titles

As part of a five-year (5 yr), Prime Cadastral Surveying IDIQ contract with Region 1 of the US Forest Service (USFS), which GLS acquired in 2017 GLS has completed five (5) government cadastral surveys involving approximately 45.5 miles of USFS boundary being surveyed, cleared and posted. Additionally, approximately 169 Public Land Surveying System (PLSS) monuments have been searched, recovered, calculated and/or set, per USFS Region 1 Specifications while following the Bureau of Land Management Manual of Surveying Instructions. The purpose of these surveys was to establish and/or re-establish USFS land boundaries in rural areas throughout Western Montana and Northern Idaho.

Our government projects have included various Boundary surveys, Retracement Dependent Resurvey of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS), Retracement Dependent Resurvey of Mineral Surveys (MS), encroachment surveys and Agricultural exempt surveys. GLS is a group of professional surveyors from all disciplines within the surveying profession. We specialize in cadastral surveying because that’s what we are passionate about. With this said, all our surveyors are fully capable of completing your project from field to finish in an expeditious and cost-efficient manner, regardless of the agency. There is no government project to small or to large that we at GLS cannot handle, adapt to or finish with 100% confidence.
