Cadastral PLSS Standardized Data - Points (Raton) - Version 1.1
These are the corners of the PLSS. This feature class contains summary
information about the coordinate location and reliability of corner coordinate
information. alternate names or aliases for corners are also inlcuded in this
feature class.

Text label
POINTID
Unique point identifier for the corner that follows the national point
identification standard.
BLM
Unique identifier
PLSSID
Concatenation of the state, principal meridian, township, range, and
duplicate code that forms a unique id for the PLSS Township.
BLM
Unique identifier
XCOORD
X, longitude or east coordinate value for the corner.
BLM
X, lognitude or east coordinate value
YCOORD
Y, latitude or north coordinate value for the corner.
BLM
Y, latitude or north coordinate value
ZCOORD
Z, Height, Observed Elevation for the corner.
BLM
Observed elevation
ELEV
This is an average elevation in feet for the entire PLSS Township.
BLM
Average elevation in feet
ERRORX
The error in the X direction, typically computed from a least squares
analysis.
BLM
Error in X direction
ERRORY
The error in the Y direction, typically computed from a least squares
analysis.
BLM
Error in Y direction
ERRORZ
The error in the Z direction, typically computed from a least squares
analysis.
BLM
Error in Z direction
HDATUM
the horizontal datum for the coordinate value, this is the datum the
reported coordinate value is reported in and may be different than the GIS
horizontal datum.
BLM
Horizontal datum
VDATUM
The vertical datum for an observed Z or height.
BLM
Vertical datum
STEWARD1
the primary data steward for the plss point. The alias for this field will
be updated in the version 2 schema.
BLM
Primary data steward
STEWARD2
The second data steward for the PLSS point if there is a second steward,
such as on a county boundary or a federal ownership boundary. The alias for this
field will be updated in the version 2 schema.
BLM
Second data steward
LOCAL1
The first alias for the corner point, most commonly occurs on PLSS Township
boundaries where a point has an identifier in more than one township or when a
rectangular and non-rectangular survey share a common corner. If this is blank
there is not a known alias.
BLM
First alias
LOCAL2
The second alias for the corner point, most commonly occurs on PLSS
Township boundaries where a point has an identifier in more than one township or
when a rectangular and non-rectangular survey share a common corner. If this is
blank there is not a known alias.
BLM
Second alias
LOCAL3
The third alias for the corner point, most commonly occurs on PLSS Township
boundaries where a point has an identifier in more than one township or when a
rectangular and non-rectangular survey share a common corner. If this is blank
there is not a known alias.
BLM
Third alias
LOCAL4
The fourth alias for the corner point, most commonly occurs on PLSS
Township boundaries where a point has an identifier in more than one township or
when a rectangular and non-rectangular survey share a common corner. If this is
blank there is not a known alias.
BLM
Fourth alias
RELY
The reliability or accuracy of coordinate value as a single entry, may be a
coded value.
BLM
Accuracy of coordinate value
COORDPROC
The coordinate computation procedure which typically reflects the
adjustment method or a standard followed to compute the coordinate from the
field observation. Least squares analysis, regional adjustment, compass rule are
examples of adjustment procedures.
BLM
Coordinate computation procedure
COORDSYS
the coordinate system for the coordinate value, this may be different than
the GIS coordinate system if the reported x,y values are different than the GIS
coordinate system.
BLM
Coordinate value
COORDMETH
the method of observation or measurement for the coordinate value. This
typically indicates a technology such as GPS, digitized, line of sight.
