Section Corner Coordinate Project for Wood County

The Wood County Section Coordinate project is an ongoing project that is funded annually by the Land Records Modernization budget. The goal of this project is to collect accurate, updated coordinate information of section corners to improve the existing information of sections, which are also known as section summaries. The section coordinate information is the foundation upon which all county data layers are based or will be adjusted to in the future. The progress and success of this ongoing project is important to the quality of land information and mapping. All corners set in the original government survey have survey-grade coordinates, with the exception of those currently under water.

Request for U.S. Public Land Survey System (PLSS) Corner Remonumentation

The U.S. Public Land Survey System corners are the basis for property ownership in Wood County. These corners were established at great cost by the United States, and re-established by Wood County in the past years. The County recognizes the ongoing need to maintain existing corners and to continually re-establish lost or obliterated corners. In an effort to encourage maintenance of the PLSS, the County has established a cost assistance program. If you are a Registered Land Surveyor in the State of Wisconsin and will be performing a survey in a section where corners need maintenance, please fill out the request form and submit it to the Wood County Surveyor for approval.
