Land Research

Rede had done several videos on Land Research using very useful websites. I covered 2 of the sites April of 2006

Plotting land on free quadrant maps from

I was VERY impressed with the quality of the maps on Libre Map Project , but the TIF files were a bit large (I averaged about 10 megs). I would recommend converting them into PDF so you can just print out what you need.

Basically to use the Libre Map Project, Click “Data” > Click the state you want > Then use the “Search” or Click “View the entire list of USGS Oklahoma Digital Raster Graphic Maps” > Then look in the “Cell Name” or “Longitude & Latitude” for the map you want.
