Government Surveys

The North Dakota State Water Commission and the Office of the State Engineer are responsible for the preservation and dissemination of official government survey plats (GLOs) and notes for the State of North Dakota. Many of these documents are as old, or older, than the state itself, dating back to the late 1800's through the early 1900's.

We now provide access to all of the GLO and benchmarks for the State of North Dakota through our new interactive mapping service. Survey Map Service
