Township and Range made easy! Use this free township and range locator to search by address, place, land parcel description or GPS coordinates (latitude, longitude). View and search the Public Land Survey System (PLSS), also known as Congressional townships or survey townships, all the way down to the section, quarter section and quarter quarter section level, all overlaid on a fully interactive Google Map. Optionally, add section township range labels, and overlay counties and cities as well!

Quick Tips for using this Montana Section Township and Range map tool

  1. There are four ways to get started using this Montana Section Township and Range map tool
    • In the “Search places” box above the map, type an address, city, etc. and choose the one you want from the auto-complete list
    • Click the map to see the Section, Township and Range for where you clicked (Monthly Contributors also get Dynamic Maps)
    • Use the “Find parcel” tool below the map to search for a known Section, Township and Range, for example from a land deed. Tip: You don’t have to specify a Section if you only know the Township and Range. Also, you can leave the PM (Prime Meridian) set to “any” and the tool will let you know if there are multiple matches.
    • To search using GPS coordinates use the “Find lat long” box in the top right above the map*
    • Click the button in the upper right corner of the map to use your current location. Click the button again to automatically update your location every 1, 5 or 10 minutes (Monthly Contributors also get an option to update every several seconds, shown as ◉A for Active).**
    Township, Range and Section lines will draw, as well as quarter and quarter quarter sections if you are zoomed in enough. The Township, Range, Section, Principal Meridian, County, State and Longitude/Latitude will be displayed above the map.
    As you click on townships, sections and aliquot parts smaller than a section (such as quarter sections), the approximate area in acres (square miles for townships) will be shown for the yellow-highlighted unit. Only use this acreage as an approximate, as it is a GIS-computed area and may not correspond with the official survey-recorded area.
  2. Optionally, check the “Show labels” checkbox in the lower left corner of the map to see the names of township and range, section and quarter quarter section on the map. More labels will appear as you zoom in. There are also options to show US city limits and county lines on the map.
  3. Subscribe to receive notification of tool updates and usage tips

* You can search using various formats of latitude longitude, including degrees, minutes and seconds; degrees and decimal minutes; or decimal degrees
** The “Locate” button will be more accurate on smartphones and other devices containing a GPS; desktop browsers typically show an approximate location

Section Township Range is part of the U.S. Public Land Survey System (PLSS), which is administered by the United States Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The PLSS is a system of land surveying that was created by the United States government in the early 1800s. The system divides land into rectangular parcels, which are then further subdivided into smaller parcels. The PLSS is used to survey much of the land in the United States, including land that is owned by the federal government, state governments, and private individuals.

The following states use the BLM’s PLSS and are covered by this Section Township Range map tool: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio (partial), Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming. The remaining U.S. states typically use the older metes and bounds system and are therefore not covered by this tool.

Why would you need a map with section, township and range?

Here are several example uses for section, township and range on Google Maps (see disclaimer):

  • Real Estate and Development: Developers, realtors, and prospective buyers can gain insights into property locations, approximate sizes and associated boundaries such as city limits and county lines, essential for planning.
  • Land Parcel Identification: Section, township and range provides a system for land ownership and description, enabling the identification of land parcels.
  • Agricultural Planning: Farmers and agri-businesses can understand plot divisions better, aiding in crop planning, irrigation, and land use decisions.
  • Historical Research: For historians and researchers, the section, township and range system offers a glimpse into land allocation, settlement patterns, and historical land use.
  • Legal and Surveying Work: Attorneys, surveyors, and land managers rely on the section, township and range system for legal documentation, dispute resolution, and land management tasks. This tool does not serve as a replacement for such services, but it may be useful in the initial gathering of background information.
  • Environmental Studies: Scientists and conservationists can use section, township and range to study specific land sections, assess environmental impacts, or plan conservation efforts.
  • Infrastructure Projects: Understanding section, township and range is crucial for large-scale infrastructure projects, ensuring accurate land acquisition, project planning, and construction.
  • Resource Exploration: Companies involved in mining, oil, or other resource explorations can pinpoint locations and potential extraction sites.
  • Land Taxation: Governments and local agencies can use section, township and range for property tax assessments.
  • Educational Insights: Geographers, educators, and students can better understand land division systems, aiding in studies related to geography, history, and land management.
  • Outdoor Recreation: Adventurers, hunters, or campers can use section, township and range for precise navigation and understanding land permissions in wilderness areas.
  • Community and Regional Planning: Local governments and urban planners can leverage the section, township and range system for community development, zoning, and land use planning.

Why was this tool created? Many people have requested to be able to search by section, township and range, and be able to see them displayed on top of Google Maps. While some other tools show Section Township Range on Google Earth, requiring downloads and installation, this free tool shows Section Township Range on Google Maps in a web browser, requiring no downloads and no installation. And you can even use it on your smart phone or tablet!

Other Notes

  • The Search places box uses a standard Google Maps geocoding engine, therefore you can type street addresses, road names, points of interest, etc. to see what section, township, and range that location is part of
  • Many of the map layers from which this information is extracted are very large, so it may take several seconds for all of the map layers to finish drawing
  • Because the map layers are large, fewer lines will be shown if you are zoomed out too far
  • Note that typing an address will zoom in the map very close, whereas typing a city or county by itself will show you a map with a wider view
