This application allows you to view parcels entered in the State Land Administration System (LAS) that are Other State Lands (OSL) and Limited State Holdings (LSH) as depicted on the status plats in relation to other state interests, topography, hydrography and other physical and cultural features. In the map layer sidebar, the parcels of interest (OSL, LSH) are listed as Other State Title. The application allows you to view these parcels with solid fill or alternatively with a cross hatch that will allow additional information such as USGS quads to show through. As you zoom in you will be provided with additional data viewing options that you can select in the map legend sidebar.
