Much of California's land was already in private ownership when the Federal Public Land
Survey was done in the late 1800's. Private lands were not included in the survey. As a result, there are large gaps in the
official PLSS data. The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has
"filled the gaps" for their purposes of locating pesticide use and water wells.
Not for survey use
Displays townships, and sections. Calculates area, centroid, and corner points.
You must zoom into the State of California to see the data.
In mountainous areas it might be helpful to turn off the terrain layer in Google
Earth. Otherwise, the survey grid can look distorted as it shapes itself to
the earth's surface.
