Have you ever been looking for a feature in Google Earth & thought, boy this would be so much easier if I could search for it by township, range, section. Well, now you can! Just use the Earth Survey Plugin (ESPlugin).
What all does the Earth Survey Plugin have to offer:
- Section Geocoder: search by point or township,range, section. Link to the BLM General Land Office records webpage which provides "live access to Federal land conveyance records for the Public Land States, including image access to more than five million Federal land title records issued between 1820 and the present. [They] also have images related to survey plats and field notes, dating back to 1810."
- Address Geocoder: get address information for placemarks and add, customize, and save placemark data.
- Overlays: drive-time (5, 10, and 15 minute) polygons; BLM townships, principal meridians, and special surveys; USGS quadrangle index and topo maps.
- Layers: borders (counties, states, etc.), roads, buildings (not available in all cities), trees (not available in all cities), and terrain
