The Land Ordinance of 1785, as adopted by the Continental Congress, signaled the commencement of the Rectangular Public Land Survey System as a means of dividing federally-owned land for transfer of ownership to the public. After the United States granted title to a parcel of land, jurisdiction over that land passed to the state. Where the lands were in private ownership, it became a function of county or local surveyors to restore lost corners and subdivide the sections. The Indiana Constitution of 1851 as amended in 1852 officially established the Office of County Surveyor as an elected office. The length of the term of office was set at four years, but unlike many other county offices, there is no limit to the number of terms that may be served.

"The Surveyor is directed by statute to prepare, maintain, and keep in his custody a legal survey record book showing maps of each section, grant, tract, subdivision or group of such areas in sufficient detail so that the approximate location of each such legal survey can be shown. Surveyors are required to maintain section corners and corner record books {IC 36-2-12-11}.

"The Surveyor supervises all civil engineering work of the county unless the commissioners have appointed a county engineer {IC 36-2-12-8}. If the Surveyor is a registered engineer he or she may be appointed county engineer {IC 36-2-15-16}.

"In addition, the surveyor supervises all legal ditch construction, serves as an ex officio member, with the commissioners, of the county drainage board, and serves as an ex officio member of the county planning commission. If the county surveyor is registered as a land surveyor under IC 25-31, he or she is entitled to be compensated 1-1/2 as much as an unlicensed surveyor {IC 36-2-15(b)}."
