Abstract:
This data set contains lands conveyed to the State of Alaska by Patent (PA) or by Tentative Approval (TA). The Land Status attributes are a snapshot of the Land Information System Database and are only accurate as that database. The data is produced to the aliquot part where possible and to the section (square mile) level where aliquot part is not available in the database record. Where aliquot parts are not available, the data is generalized to the section level. Also USS and Rectangular survey data has not been integrated into the process. At this time, all positions are as calculated or as derived from the township and section protraction. "Aliquot" is a Latin word meaning to divide (a number or a quantity, or in our case, a piece of land) into equal parts leaving no remainder. In legal descriptions, only quarter or half divisions of a section of land are known as aliquot parts. An aliquot part is always described in relation to the four points of the compass, with the use of the standard compass abbreviations, N, W, S, and E .
Purpose:
This dataset was created for displaying State of Alaska conveyances and identification for fire, and for general mapping purposes. The Generalized Land Status layers are graphic depictions of land descriptions stored in the BLM Alaska Land Information System and may not be adequate to depict land status at the parcel level or for legal title research. The Master Title Plat layer may be used as a base map to assist in areas of overlapping land status.
Supplemental_Information:
Alaska Lands: Alaska's 365 million acres were purchased by the federal government from Russia in 1867 for about 2 cents an acre. Most of this land was at one time administered by BLM's predecessor agency, the General Land Office. Legislation such as the Alaska Statehood Act (1958), the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (1971) and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (1980) radically impacted the land ownership patterns of Alaska. These laws authorized land title transfer to approximately 150 million acres into private ownership. National Parks, monuments, preserves, wildlife refuges and forests were established on more than 100 million acres. After all land title conveyances are completed, the approximately 75 million acres of public lands will be administered by the BLM under the principles of multiple use for the long-term benefit of the American people. BLM is the land title record holder for the United States. Casetype Land Status Casetype Description: Where 262400 is the ALIS Casetype; PA or TA is the Land Status; STATE GT SCH SEC PATENTS is the casetype description. The following casetypes, conveyance land status (PA, TA) and casetype descriptions were used to create this dataset. Casetype is repeated for each of the two land status types. 262400 PA STATE GT SCH SEC PATENTS 262400 TA STATE GT SCH SEC PATENTS 262710 PA AK-MENTAL HEALTH GRANTS 262710 TA AK-MENTAL HEALTH GRANTS 262711 PA COMMUNITY GRANTS 262711 TA COMMUNITY GRANTS 262712 PA COMMUNITY GRANT FOREST 262712 TA COMMUNITY GRANT FOREST 262713 PA AK-TERMS & CONDITIONS GT 262713 TA AK-TERMS & CONDITIONS GT 262714 PA AK-SCHOOL LNDS SETTLEMNT 262714 TA AK-SCHOOL LNDS SETTLEMNT 262720 PA AK-UNIVERSITY GRANT 262720 TA AK-UNIVERSITY GRANT 262722 PA CLEAR-LIST UNIVERSITY 262722 TA CLEAR-LIST UNIVERSITY 262730 PA GENERAL GRANT 262730 TA GENERAL GRANT 262740 PA MINERAL ESTATE 262740 TA MINERAL ESTATE

Any hardcopies or published datasets using this data shall clearly indicate their source. Any users wishing to modify this data are obligated to report the extent of their modifications. User specifically agrees not to misrepresent modifications to this data, as approved or endorsed by the BLM. The use of Generalized Land Status data layers, either separately or in combination, may not provide an accurate or complete land status depiction of the current record land status, and do not constitute the official Bureau of Land Management legal record.

Process_Description:
Created a database view based on the case types for State of Alaska conveyances used to generate the Generalized Land Status. The following casetypes, land status codes (TA, PA), and casetype descriptions were used to create the database view. Database view also includes the case serial number. 262400 PA STATE GT SCH SEC PATENTS 262400 TA STATE GT SCH SEC PATENTS 262710 PA AK-MENTAL HEALTH GRANTS 262710 TA AK-MENTAL HEALTH GRANTS 262711 PA COMMUNITY GRANTS 262711 TA COMMUNITY GRANTS 262712 PA COMMUNITY GRANT FOREST 262712 TA COMMUNITY GRANT FOREST 262713 PA AK-TERMS & CONDITIONS GT 262713 TA AK-TERMS & CONDITIONS GT 262714 PA AK-SCHOOL LNDS SETTLEMNT 262714 TA AK-SCHOOL LNDS SETTLEMNT 262720 PA AK-UNIVERSITY GRANT 262720 TA AK-UNIVERSITY GRANT 262722 PA CLEAR-LIST UNIVERSITY 262722 TA CLEAR-LIST UNIVERSITY 262730 PA GENERAL GRANT 262730 TA GENERAL GRANT 262740 PA MINERAL ESTATE 262740 TA MINERAL ESTATE
