The U.S. Public Land Survey System for Missouri Book Review:

The U.S. Public Land Survey System (USPLSS) was born in 1785 and has been evolving ever since. The General Land Office (GLO) and, later, the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) system of laying out our sections, townships and ranges has been refined, changed, modified, improved, and, of course, has benefited from improvements in equipment and advances in technology. There have been eight editions of USPLSS instructions published from 1785 - 2009 by either the GLO of the BLM. The results are regional differences in the USPLSS across our United States. from Ohio (where our System began with its initial field surveys) to Alaska (where surveying work continues). And, there are differences in the USPLSS from state to state as legislatures have enacted statutes pertaining to the System in their state, and each state's courts have interpreted the statutes, or, established a resurvey legal principle through case law. While the broad view of the USPLSS is similar, each state will have its own peculiarities, specific to only that state. Textbooks and reference manuals about the USPLSS in general and about generic resurvey procedures on the System are available. Textbooks or reference manuals about the USPLSS which are state-specific and cover the original GLO instructions, resurvey procedures and applicable state statutes and case law are not available. Until now...for Missouri. This book is a complete synthesis of the USPLSS for Missouri. Briefly, it contains: The early history of the System, from 1785 - 1815; The French and Spanish in Pre-America Missouri; The "shaping" of Missouri...its boundaries; Laying out the original GLO surveys; GLO protraction and platting; Missouri court decisions relative to the USPLSS; Historical review of Missouri statute law relative to the USPLSS (1814 to date); "Best practices" for reestablishing lost and restoring obliterated corners of the USPLSS; Example calculation problems applying coordinate geometry to lost corner reestablishment; Example GLO plats with notes. This comprehensive coverage of the USPLSS for Missouri will provide the surveying student, educator and practitioner (and those preparing for licensure as a Professional Surveyor in Missouri) with a single book that will fill the reference void that existed in the past. The book has seven chapters, three tables, twenty-eight figures, forty-eight protraction and example problems, eighty-nine example GLO plats, four appendices and a Glossary and "Further Reading" list.

Subdividing the Land Book Review:

Ideally, every tract of land has a description on paper and a physical survey on the ground. When boundary disputes arise, all parties concerned must quickly learn the vocabulary and processes involved with real estate. Written for anyone dealing in real estate transactions, Subdividing the Land: Metes and Bounds and Rectangular Survey Systems provides this background. It defines key legal terms, examines key concepts of Metes and Bounds, the structure of the U.S. Land Survey System and offers many illustrations and tables that clearly explain the concepts. Each state has its own property laws, but the book's material is generic enough to be applicable across the entire United States and even Canada. Taking into account that local laws may be influenced by many factors, the book also covers the roots of English property laws and the effects of French, Spanish, and Mexican legacies. The author discusses topics such as water law, mining claims, and the Metes and Bounds and Torrens system of property registry. He provides a section of basic legal concepts applicable to land transactions and a glossary of special or semi-technical terms. Unlike most other topics related to surveying, there is no math associated with the topics given; yet the subjects can be complex and tricky. Subdividing the Land is a resource of many interrelated topics, and thus presents a knowledge base for land surveyors and the background for handling many types of land transactions conducted by real estate agents, engineers, architects, and lawyers.

A Manual for Planning and Implementing the Living Standards Measurement Study Survey Book Review:

This manual explains the planning process, technical procedures, and standards used in Living Standard Measurement Study (LSMS) household surveys, including what these procedures entail, why they are used, and how they can be implemented. It provides a factual description of different procedures and standards as well as their purpose and an explanation of their distinctions. The report offers explicit instructions, along with examples of ways LSMS survey procedures have been implemented in different countries. Although the lessons presented here are derived from LSMS surveys, many of them are applicable to surveys in general, and especially to those that are complex or especially concerned with quality control. Topics covered in this manual include technical aspects of questionnaire formatting and testing, methods of implementing sample design, and fieldwork and data management procedures that have been successful. The report sketches ideas about which directions to pursue in analyzing data, presents a brief description of how to assess local statistical capacity, and includes sample work plans and budgets to give surveyors estimates of how long each process will take.
