To distribute survey-related data to the general surveying community

The Land Boundary Information System
began in 1984 as a means for
survey-related data that is maintained
and managed by federal and state agencies
to the general surveying community.
The original system
was on main-frame computers
that used dial-in modems for communications.
The system soon migrated to the personal computer
environment and delivered to surveyors on floppy disks
Today LABINS is available over the Internet
and has been greatly enhanced by the addition of digital images
of many of the original documents that support
the textual data bases.
Putting public data into the hands of the people who can use
and benefit from it the most is the goal of the Bureau of Survey and Mapping
and the developers of the software,
Resources and Environmental Analysis Center (FREAC).
