The original edition of this glossary was developed
for use by trainee cadastral surveyors during the cadastral
survey professional series of training courses. This edition
is intended for use by all BLM personnel and should be of particular
value to newly hired cadastral and cartographic personnel. For
the sake of clarity and exactness, many first edition definitions
have been modified.
The definitions are not meant to conflict with
those in other glossaries, but since the glossary is for BLM
cadastral personnel, some terms will have a meaning unique to
BLM cadastral surveys.
