There are a number of industries that use PLSS data. Russell mentions the Real Estate market, but also the Energy/Resources and Utilities industries as well. In my current applications we provide interfaces for companies to report to us the location of assets/resources based on their Township/Range/Section/Quarter/QuarterQuarter as many areas do not have a ...

I recommend mapping the XY coordinates using QGIS. This will create a Point shapefile. There are many posts about how to do this. Next, if don't have the landgrid shapefile containing Township/Range/Section data, it should be easy to find on the Internet, search for "State Name" GIS data. Finally, Intersect the two shapefiles using QGIS. Each Point should ...

I've developed tools for petroleum landmen that allow them to create polygons of leases based on PLSS legal descriptions in a spreadsheet. The first tool lives within Excel and is used to export legal descriptions of leases from the spreadsheet into an xml file. The workbook contains VBA which references a data transfer class. The class is written in .NET ...

Disclaimer: Any method you use to do this, especially with a consumer GPS unit, is going to be an approximation at best. If you truly want to know where the boundaries are, you will need to locate property pins/corners which might require a metal detector.

I was able to come up with an accurate means of achieving my desired results by creating a line FC with two features. One that follows the Southern line of the section polygon and another that follows the Western line of the section polygon. Using the offsets given by the survey, I put buffers around each line with the corresponding survey offsets and then ...

1st. You will likely have to go province by province, as provinces usually manage spatial data like that and may have to pay for it. For Saskatchewan you might find what you're looking for here or here. 2nd. You will need to then convert the data to kml and upload it to fusion tables. 3rd. Query out what you want to display in fusion tables and then show ...

What you are describing is the Alberta Township System (ATS), which is a variation of the Canadian Dominion Land Survey (DLS) system. We in the US have an old system like these called the Public Land Survey System (PLSS). I've found three potential sources of information for you: The best option to create this grid would be to do it your self using ...

At a minimum, to identify an appropriate UTM zone you need the latitude and longitude of the "principal meridian" and the range east or west. Such information designates a north-south strip of nominal 6 mile by 6 mile squares whose lower left corners are displaced from the meridian's origin by 6 miles east-west for each range. The code will have to obtain ...
