DeLorme, a provider of mapping products, has released public land survey system (PLSS) data for use in all current versions of XMap, the company's geographical information systems (GISs) software.

These free, downloadable Openspace GIS layers display township, range and section boundaries for each of the 30 states covered by the PLSS. Derived from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey and state GIS agencies, the data have been processed into a consistent format.

"DeLorme is committed to offering inexpensive software and data solutions that open the world of professional-grade mapping and GIS to as wide an audience as possible," says Geoffrey Ives, director of professional sales at DeLorme.

Users of the GIS Editor and GIS Enterprise versions of XMap can build additional attribute or spatial queries, modify the appearance of the grid or create new Openspace layers covering selected regions within a state.
