Prairie Locator has grown a lot since it was first launched in September, 2009.

More and more users, from oil field workers to emergency service workers and first responders, rely on our service every day to help them perform their duties. Today, with the launch of our new website, we will be making it easier for them and supporting more users than ever before.

We have three levels of plans:

  • Free
  • Basic
  • Professional

The Prairie Locator website has always been free for full sections and I did not want to take this away after all these years. A free account will be able to lookup full Sections just as it always has, the only change is that it is limited to 3 lookups per day.

Our basic plan is for users that need to perform many lookups in a day but only need to information on full Sections. In addition, RM information is now available for all Sections and you can now star a location and add custom notes for quick lookups. Custom notes are great for flagging different job-sites and recalling them with a click at a later time. The Basic plan costs $1 per month or $10 per year.

With the Professional plan, you have unlimited access to all lookups. Including all the features of the Basic plan, as well as support for Half Sections, Quarter Sections and Subdivisions. RM information is also available for Half Sections and Quarter Sections. The Professional plan costs $3 per month or $30 per year.

All accounts will start with a 7-day trial of the Professional plan. This will allow you to try all the features and determine what you actually need.

I also want to take a moment to talk about our iOS app. The iOS app will continue to function just as it always has. As of today, it is being treated as a separate product from the website. If you are currently using the iOS app, nothing has changed. If you purchase the iOS app today, please note that there is a difference in features between the two. Down the road I will be aligning these two products but I am not there yet.

As always, if you have any questions, feedback, feature requests or spot a bug, please drop me an email at

Thank you for your continued support through the years,
