NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Caliper is excited to announce the release of free PLSS and TXSS map layers. The Land Ordinance of 1785 established the Public Land Survey System, also known as the Township and Range system. Today the Bureau of Land Management maintains the Survey as a way to accurately categorize large areas of the Continental US. Area layers for the PLSS and for the Texas Survey System (TXSS) are now downloadable for free for Maptitude 2017 users.
The PLSS and TXSS are used:
The downloaded layers can be added to any Maptitude 2017 map. The PLSS divides large areas of the USA into townships and sections (First Divisions and Second Divisions). The Texas Land Survey Layer splits the state into tracts, sections, and labors.

"Maptitude has been an important tool for showing the geography of a variety of facilities and parameters, from rig trends by state, to patent trends by metro area, to the location of important infrastructure installations. Being able to illustrate and map these elements with Maptitude was essential for the analysis and, in addition, the software is backed up with outstanding support if needed."

"Over the past several years I’ve spent dozens if not hundreds of hours trying to figure this out. But the Maptitude PLSS data is wonderful because it covers most of the US and not just Oklahoma and includes Texas which is unique and covers quarter sections and below. Miraculous. I’m not sure that you Yankees understand just how useful this data is to us folks in flyover country. But it’s great. Thanks."
