A PLSS survey "township" is norminally a 36 square mile area and is subdivided into 36 1-square mile "sections".
Histopolis has supported the mapping of survey townships for many years.
This change adds the mapping of survey sections allowing the finer location of historical places that often specify the survey section as well as township and range.
The initial deployment of survey sections is initially limited to the State of Nebraska with the expectationf that additional states and areas will be added based on user feedback.
All places in the areas where sections are implemented on Histopolis have been updated to indicate the section or sections where they reside and associated maps have been updated to add a section layer.
If you would like to request section support for a specific area, please contact the webmaster.
