Presented by Jeff Pauk. This program begins by explaining the “Metes and Bounds” system, the only system available when surveying began in the Illinois Territory. The limitations of this system and the equipment used will be explained. The “Township System” based from the Principal Meridians is the system then put in place and is still in use today. The Global Positioning System “GPS” will be demonstrated. Mr. Pauk is a licensed Professional Land Surveyor since 1996, the owner of Madison County Surveyors, Inc. and a second generation surveyor and member of the Madison County Historical Society Board of Directors.
