      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: Coordinates of control stations are entered into a control data base with associated reliabilities.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: With GMM survey data, abstracted from survey plats, and control stations extracted from the control database, are manually entered with weighting factors into GMM software.  Compass rule and least squares adjustments are performed using weighting factors assigned to both control stations and survey line data, based on methodologies and vintage of survey.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: With GMM, section subdivision is performed to achieve land unit detail to at least the forty acre parcel level.  Instructions for calculating non-regular and minor subdivisions are persistently stored during collection and rerun after every new adjustment in order to achieve the detail necessary to delineate all lines required for depicting federal rights, interestes, restrictions, and encumberances.  Coincident lines and lines identified as non-boundary lines are removed from the data set used for final land unit constructions.  Line intersections are computed and given unique identifiers and  land units are constructed.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: GMM lists all coordinates produced by the compass rule and least squares adjustments and subdivision, with conectivity codes between points and compiles them into a single file for development of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) output.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: With PCCS, survey data abstracted from survey plats and control stations extracted from control data base are manually entered into the PCCS processing software.  A succession of compass rule adjustments is performed on the lines to adjust them to the control points, followed by a least squares analysis.  The resulting coordinates are accompanied by indications of positional reliability; the average of misclosures in the data set and the maximum misclosure in the data set.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: PCCS lists all coordinates produced by the compass rule and least squares adjustments with conectivity codes between points and compiles them into a single file for development of GIS files.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: With PCCS, section subdivision is performed to achieve land unit detail to at least the forty acre parcel level.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: GCDB data conversion software verifies correctness of GCDB file formats and content.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: Verified coordinate, line and label files are converted to GIS coverages using the topology check application.  All errors in topology are flagged for editing and correction.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: If topological errors exist, editing of arc and node data, as well as parcel labels, is performed using either GMM or ArcInfo Interface (AII).  (PCCS townships can only be edited using AII).  Final edits are entered into input files and the process is repeated until all errors are corrected and a successful GIS coverage is created.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: GIS coverages are edgematched with adjoining township data sets to insure a seamless PLSS grid is created.
      Process_Date: Unknown
    Process_Step:
      Process_Description: Topologically correct GIS coverages are modified to use FGDC compliant naming conventions and then loaded into the LSIS database.  These layers can then be downloaded as shapefiles through the LSIS website.
