TRS to Lat/Long conversion

animated405 used Ask the Experts™
I am aware of several utililities that can convert Township/Range/Section to Latitude/Longitude but am unable to find the calculation itself.

Anyone now what that is or know how I can find out? I'm not just interested in one country, however I'd need to start with basically all of North America

The calculation is a statistical regression process.  And, it can have many errors.  Basically, your trying to convert rectangular coordinates (flat world) into round world.  In addition it only covers part of the US (mostly the southern and western states).  I pretty sure if anyone has devised such a formula they keep it locked away in a vault somewhere.

Sorry, I couldn't be of more help.
