Geospatial analysis is concerned with qualitative and quantitative location of important features on the land such as infrastructure, resources, property boundaries and how these features relate to each other. Increasingly, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are based on survey data such as GPS control point coordinates, survey measurements of distance and direction, and other survey data. As a thematic layer in a GIS, survey data can lead to a more accurate depiction of parcel location. The BLM’s Geographic Coordinate Data Base (GCDB) in the development of the Cadastral National Spatial Data Infrastructure (CadNSDI) is an example of this process.
