You're looking at the old, unsupported version of the LLD conversion app Prairie Coordinates. This app converts LLD and NTS coordinates for western Canada, but only supports LLD conversion for W2M, W3M and W4M. For more coverage, more stability, and better features, check out Prairie Coordinates Plus.

Prairie Coordinates is not intended for absolute locations, emergency response, and the developer does not guarantee the accuracy of any location obtained or converted using the application, and cannot be held liable for any information obtained from the application. Especially anything stupid you might do by trusting only your phone.

Known issues:
*Near meridians, LLD may be inaccurate or missing.
*Areas of Saskatchewan where townships are less than 6 sections north to south are not supported (e.g. those weird 44A townships, etc.), as the algorithm does not yet know how to deal with them.

Please send any issues to
