Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines the geographic character of Presettlement land survey records (PLSRs), to review PLSR studies in the last 5 decades and trends in these studies based on the geographic characteristics that have been analysed, and to investigate data quality issues concerning the PLSRs. The framework used in this examination is that of Geographic Information Science (GIScience), including geographic characteristics of space, theme and time, and data quality components of lineage, positional accuracy, attribute accuracy, logical consistency and completeness. Finally, thoughts concerning future research avenues are presented
