One stop for PLSS

Once you've conducted your high-precision surveys with TURN GPS, contribute your results to help us maintain the integrity and increase the accuracy of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) and land management practices throughout Utah. Our intuitive PLSS web application offers a section corner map viewer with monument record sheet download. It also makes it effortless to comply with state code by creating a single entry point to upload your existing monument sheets, or quickly enter data, to create new monument records and automatically submit them to county surveyors for review.

Monument restoration funding

Led by UGRC's State Surveyor, the Monument Replacement and Restoration Committee (MRRC) coordinates efforts to identify, replace, and restore survey monuments, which serve as the cornerstone for accurate land surveys. The MRRC administers an annual grant program aimed at assisting counties with improving their inventory of monuments by providing funds for the location and replacement of these historical markers, helping ensure the continued accuracy and reliability of property boundaries for surveyors and landowners alike. Contact us with questions about how to participate in this program.

Simplify municipal annexations

UGRC supports the Lieutenant Governor's office with municipal and political boundary annexations, disconnections, and adjustments. If you plan to submit one of these to the Lieutenant Governor's office, feel free to get in touch with us about the requirements and expectations of your submission to make the process clearer and smoother for you, and for us! The sooner we can get your changes integrated into our data, the sooner people can take advantage of the new boundaries.
