Sections, Townships, & Ranges

An Ideal Township
An Ideal Section




           
The "Ideal" township is a 6 mile by 6 mile quadrangle that contains 36 square miles & allows the land to be divided in a rectangular method.  This method utilizes a principal meridian & baseline to originate from. Townships are numberd north & south from the baseline. They are also measured east & west with respect to the principal meridian by range numbers. The north & west lots of each township are designated to compensate for discrepancies that may occur in that township.
The "Ideal" section is one square mile containing 640 acres.  It is 5,280 feet by 5,280 feet & is divided up by quarter sections. A section can be divided several times by repeating variations & combinations of this method.
