LHerrou,

This is more of a geology question. I have the township and range information for few wells. I want to know the latitude and longitude using the township and range.

Thank you.

Have you tried google the sites I mentioned, and/or google maps / google earth? If those don't do it, I might have a couple of other ideas - have to look up some info from a seminar I took earlier this year.

here's a few quick possibilities:

The Township Geocoder tool -
http://www.geocommunicator.gov/GeoComm/lsis_home/townshipdecoder/index.html
"The Township Geocoder allows for the conversion of Latitude and Longitude (Lat/Long) values into Township, Range and Section values. Likewise, Township, Range and Section values can be converted into polygon centroids in Lat/Long format. "

TRS2LL is a routine to convert legal locations (Township/Range/Section) to the latitude and longitude of the center of the section. It also converts any latitude and longitude to the legal Location (TRS).

This program covers the following states: AR AZ CA CO ID KS MT ND NE NM NV OK OR SD UT WA WY
