Each state is made up of townships, each township is divided into sections.
Each township is 6m by 6m. The number in the middle is the section of that town.
A circle with lines going into it is called a depression.
A circle with circles getting smaller on the inside is called a hill.
The blue bushes and lines indicate a marsh or swamp.
The green in and around the swamp or marsh indicates a wooded marsh/swamp.
The red and white dashed lines on a map indicate a secondary highway.
The green areas on the map indicate a woodland area.
Here theyre showing the county boarder.
These numbers are the township number. You use these to help you find the section youre looking for in that town, the individual red numbers.
Lakes are usually labeled on the map. The smaller water areas that look like water are still lakes and ponds.
The dashed lines on a map indicate an unpaved road.
The dots and dashes in this lake indicate that its an intermittent lake.
Larger cemeteries are represented by the first three letters, Cem.
The grainy type of area is a sand or mud area.
