Township Canada (https://townshipcanada.com) is a simple tool that allows for searching, converting, and mapping Canadian legal land descriptions. What is a legal land description?
Any parcel of land in Canada can be located by its legal land description. Legal land descriptions are based on survey grid networks that divide the country into equal-sized parcels of land. Many industries in Canada such as oil & gas and agriculture use legal land descriptions to identify their assets such as wells, facilities, and land parcels.
Township Canada provides the Canadian survey grid as a data layer on a map – technically speaking it’s called the Dominion Land Survey (DLS) grid for Alberta and Saskatchewan and the National Topographic System (NTS) for British Columbia. Users can also locate themselves on the map – this becomes handy when using the app on the phone and driving around, which turns it into a navigation app with a built-in grid network. This can be especially useful to those who use legal land descriptions to locate themselves and find their destinations such as truck drivers, conservation officers, or even emergency responders in rural areas.
