This page is designed to be a reference to various papers, research, and other documents written about and in support of Cadastral retracment surveying. Most are specific to the systems which have been jointly developed by the University of Maine, Department of Spatial Information Systems Engineering, Dr. Ray Hintz principal investigator, and Cadastral Survey, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Dept. of the Interior.
