Deed Mapping in the Public Domain States

Thirty states were surveyed with the section, township, and range system, otherwise known as the public domain system, or public land system. Finding the location of a parcel in the public domain is usually fairly straightforward. This site at the University of Montana is great for locating land in 18 western states. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) also has lots of information at their web site regarding the land that it oversees. And we can help out if you're stuck.

Locating a parcel doesn't require a program like DeedMapper, but DeedMapper can be very useful if you've got a large project involving lots of parcels. For example, suppose you'd like to make a map showing all of the original settlers of a county. DeedMapper can be a great help in a project like that.
