Public Land Survey System Section Corner Database, Minnesota: SECTIC-24K

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

SECTIC-24K is a digital file of the Public Land Survey (PLS) section corners of Minnesota as recorded on the most recent edition of the U.S. Geological Survey's 1:24,000 7.5-minute quadrangle maps that were available in the mid-1990s. The database attempted to best fit the section corner locations shown on the published 1:24,000 maps, even though better real-world data for the location of the section corner might be available elsewhere. The SECTIC-24K data set also includes a program which has the following utilities: Utility A: Section corner extraction from the SECTIC-24K database by county, 1:24,000-scale quad, or township. Utility B: Conversion among PLS, UTM, or LAT/LONG coordinates, either interactively or by file conversion. It also allows NAD27 - NAD83 conversions. Utility C: Creation of a dBASE output file from SECTIC-24K. This older software program does not run on Windows 7 - 64 bit computers (it does run on Windows - 32 bit). There is also a web service that generates much the same info as the SECTIC program. The main differences are it may not do NAD27/NAD83 shifts and it doesn't have a batch mode. A batch mode could be created using the web service and the scripting code of your choice. Find the web service at:
