Have you taken a look at the wiki?Can someone explain UTM, azimuths, and PLSS to me? I just don't get it.
PLSS stands for Public Land Survey System. And syo is right, its starting point is in East Liverpool Ohio, and yes, I have been there. It is a way to organize parcels of land, and really isn't way too significant in the modern age. An area, designated by state, is given a set of axes. x is the base line, y is the principal meridian. The axes are then given units of Range and Township, respectively, and each is six miles long. Each sector divided by one unit of T and R is 36 sq. mi., therefore. On the map drawing which is required for most tests, one of these square miles is what you are drawing, labeled 1-36.Can someone explain UTM, azimuths, and PLSS to me? I just don't get it.
I would recommend reading road maps for fun or right before you go to bed. It has been a favorite pastime of mine for several years, even before I got onto Road Scholar. It can be pretty fun, or maybe I am just saying this because I enjoy doing it. I do think that it can be pretty fun. Get a big atlas for the entire US, so you can be prepared for any state they give you. I have reached the point that I can answer questions about physical features in each stats wight even looking at the map because I have looked at maps for fun for a long time.I'm going to join this event next year, Is there anything I should know for starting?
