Information Stored by PLSS Section or Township

A township is a square grid of 36 sections (or approximately 36 square miles). See The Surveying System in Pima County for an explanation of sections, townships and the Public Land Survey System (PLSS).

The types of information stored by section and township differ. You may need to look at both sections and townships to see everything available. To see the types of information available, click the township and section "Show information for..." buttons. Section information is limited to Pima County. Township information is limited to Arizona.
