I guess it's my turn to ask a question:
How many acres are in a PLSS section?

Ok... What are bathymetric contours?

Isn't it the contours that are underwater, and indicate depth from the surface level.
Problems are better pursued with General Electric GE90-115 engines.

Which states don't use PLSS?
The original 13 colonies, instead they use the Metes and Bounds.

True, but also 5 other states don’t use PLSS. These include Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, and Maine. Vermont and Maine were not originally part of the 13 original colonies. These states are called colonial states, and don’t use PLSS (I’m not sure why Texas does not use PLSS). Whatever, your turn!
