How to format sector references

  • by

    In many labels, I see what I think are some sort of sector references, but they are not consistently formatted. Sometimes S.4E, sometimes S 4E, sometimes S4E. Should I transcribe them exactly as I see them or should I massage them all to a single format, eg S4E?


  • T-M by T-M

    This is the Public Land Survey System (PLSS):

    I usually transcribe them as I see them as there doesn't seem to be a standard format.

    Thus, for example, the description T1SR20E S13 MDM - this is an example of how they should be transcribed, taken from the aforementioned wiki page.
