State of Michigan Land and Mineral Ownership Maps

State land ownership information is derived weekly from the Michigan Department of Natural Reources (MDNR) Real Estate Information System (REIS).

Parcel information in REIS is compiled to the quarter-quarter section level, resulting in eight ownership categories. Mapping in this manner will NOT accurately reflect parcel boundaries, however it does identify the presence of state-owned property WITHIN a quarter-quarter section. Multiple parcels with varying types of ownership within a quarter-quarter section result in the combined ownership categories.

The quality and completeness of REIS data is unknown. It is suggested that this data be combined with a second source, such as plat maps, to further identify ownership.
