Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
A reorganisation of the Lands Department on 26 October 1874 made the Surveyor General administratively subordinate to the Under Secretary of Lands. The Surveyor General was relieved of all administrative duties except those directly connected with the survey of land and the custody and maintenance of Survey Office maps and the control over officers placed under his immediate supervision. Matters related to the issue of deeds, auction sales and the leasing of pastured land were addressed by the Under Secretary of Lands. The Survey Office was thus merged with the Lands Department as a Branch having its own discrete functions, but divested of all independent authority. However, despite the clear delineation of status and responsibilities, the office of Under Secretary for Lands continued to be held in conjunction with that of the Surveyor General until 1882.

FUNCTIONS:
In controlling and regulating the survey, sale, occupation and management of Crown Lands in Queensland, the Survey Office was responsible for the primary survey of the public estate, the boundaries of public roads and reserves and surveys relating to the alienation, sale or leasing of Crown Lands and for the associated mapping, record-keeping and administration.

ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE:
Early administrative structure of the Survey Office comprised the Computing, Clerical, Compiling of Maps, Lithographic and Photographic, Trigonometric Surveys and Astronomical Branches and the Public Map Room, as well as District and Staff Surveyors who preformed largely executive and supervisory duties. The majority of the survey field work was undertaken by the contract surveyors.

From 1903 to 1907, as part of a public service retrenchment program caused by the general economic depression, the position of Surveyor-General was downgraded to 'Chief Surveyor' and the Survey Office was placed under the direct control of the Under Secretary for Public Lands.

The Land Administration Board was established in 1928 as an advisory and regulatory body in which the Surveyor-General was an ex-officio member. In 1932, the position of Under Secretary for Lands was abolished and departmental administration became solely the responsibility of the Land Administration Board, later Commission.

By 1975, the Survey Office was comprised of 6 branches and various committees and boards under the jurisdiction of the Surveyor-General, viz., General Branch, Surveys Branch, Registration Branch, Survey Co-ordination Branch, Cartographic Branch, Topographic Branch, Surveyors Board, Queensland Place Names Board, etc.

ABOLITION:
In March 1975, the Survey Office was separated from the Lands Department and placed within the new portfolio of Survey, Valuation, Urban and Regional Affairs. Subsequently in December 1975, the Survey Office became a distinct and separate department titled the Mapping and Surveying Department.
