Also known as the rectangular survey system or public land survey system, the government survey system refers to a federal land survey system that uses (north and south lines) meridians and (east and west lines) base lines. The area includes sections (1 mile on each side), townships (6 miles on each side), and quadrangles (24 miles on each side).
