Specifically for the oil-patch, we provide Rocanda Land Tracker conversion software which will allow you to convert any LSD location into a corresponding latitude/longitude coordinate which you can then input into any mapping program. The program also converts any BC NTS coordinate into a corresponding latitude/longitude. We have also just added reverse conversion ability for any LSD West of the first meridian so you can enter the latitude and longitude of your position and immediately find out which LSD you are on. We have recently allowed you to download a free trial version which you can find below.
The software has the ability to directly export the LSD coordinate into Google Maps.
