I'm having difficulty locating a shapefile for New Mexico PLSS Townships and Ranges. Does anyone have recommendations on where to find this data.

  • I tried using the BLM website, NM taxation and Revenue website, as well as the ArcGis Database. I just found a CAD database and downloading it now. Hoping the shapefile is in there! – rrvill Aug 29 '18 at 19:47
  • reevesii - any idea how to download the data or is it just an interactive map? – rrvill Aug 29 '18 at 19:52

The USDA Geospatial Data Gateway has PLSS township/range shapefiles by state, as well as a ton of other excellent free data.

  • Excellent, thank you! Looks like this should work, downloading it now. – rrvill Aug 29 '18 at 19:58
  • Great to hear. If that works, don't forget to mark the answer as accepted. – lambertj Aug 29 '18 at 20:03
