I made a short video highlighting a few real estate features of Earth Point. It is a bit rough, but please enjoy.

Township and Range - Public Land Survey System on Google Earth.

A user account is recommended for the features on this web page.

This page maps the United States Public Land Survey System onto Google Earth.  For more information about the land survey, Wikipedia has a good article.  You can read about locating parcels at Earth Point Blog.

There are two data sets to choose from, "BLM" and "National Atlas".

BLM Township, Range, and Section

Displays townships, sections, and quarter-quarter sections if you zoom in close enough (most, but not all areas have quarter-quarter sections mapped).  Calculates area, centroid, and corner points.  You must zoom into the central or western United States 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.

Information: BLM Township and Range

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) cadastral survey program is responsible for the official boundary surveys for all federal agencies in the U.S. that together manage over 700 million acres. The Public Land Survey System also called the Rectangular Survey System is the foundation for many survey-based land information systems.
