Land Status (LS)
1) Determination of the rights, restrictions and surface management agency that pertains to a specific land unit. 2) The cumulative result of those cases that define ownership and limitations on the right to use or dispose of a specific piece of land. Land Status results from an analysis of title cases, as well as those cases which impose segregations or authorize specific uses on the land. It consists of information pertaining to ownership, outstanding claims or applications for use or title, segregations, and any other information that might affect how the public land/mineral laws would operate with respect to the particular piece of land involved.
