  1. Will I be able to geocode data from an excel sheet with township, range and section (Public Land Survey System)? Can you give me any advice if not. I have a large excel sheet with locations only in the PLSS system of the Bureau Land Management. Thank you.

  2. Hi. No, the program only links to either placenames, subadministrative provinces, or countries, all based on name matching. The PLSS seems to be a different system entirely, where individual US states are divided into a grid system with codes referencing each grid cell location. As a suggestion you really just need to get the shapefiles for the PLSS (which seem possible to get from http://www.geocommunicator.gov/Geocomm/lsis_home/home/index.htm), which should have variables containing the codes for township, range, and section, and then join the information from your spreadsheet to the shapes in the PLSS shapefiles based on those codes. That joining unfortunately requires knowledge of database systems or programming. If you are willing to go that route I could write you a really simple Python script to start you off (for doing the join and making the final shapefile)…

    • Assuming you have a field in your data that specifies the country and you chose the correct field, it sounds like your data spells the united states in a way that the program doesnt automatically recognize. You can manually assign the correct countries by clicking on the flag icon on the input screen.

  3. Hey,

    I’ve been using your program, and it works like a charm.
    I had to work on some of the country names to get them to work, but some keep returning “no matching lookup-file for this country”, even when I copy and paste the country names from your files!

    Some examples are:
    – El Salvador
    – Dominican Republic
    – Puerto Rico

    Any idea where this could have gone wrong?

    Thanks a lot for your work!

    • Hi Laurent,

      Sorry for the late reply. Glad to hear you’ve been using the program, and hopefully you got around the problem already. I assume you already knew that you can manually match country names via the flag icon.

      I checked that the download folder for the GNS source contains the required files for the three countries: “es.txt”, “dr.txt”, and “us.txt” (Puerto Rico uses the same file as the US since it is a territory).

      Any further troubleshooting would be possible, but instead I will be focusing my efforts to release an entirely new massively reworked version soon, so I think it would be better to wait for that.

      Regards
