Abstract: Advances in the development and accuracy of Geographic Information Science (GIS) in concert with the rapid development of advanced microprocessors and computer software have resulted in widely available survey data. No longer held captive by the discipline of surveying, this data is currently being used by geographers, cartographers, municipal planners and realtors for display and reproduction. Surveying provides the physical and legal basis for boundary delineation while GIS provides the tools to readily yield information from spatial data, and to economically conduct analyses enabling a more comprehensive understanding of boundary issues. A case study in the Bureau of Land Management’s Manzano Wilderness Study Area is used in this thesis to illustrate some of the potential effects of boundary uncertainty and to answer the question “What are the roles of GIS and surveying in identifying and resolving boundary uncertainty on public land?”
