The Public Land Survey System (PLSS) is the surveying method developed and used in the United States to plat, or divide, real property for sale and settling. [wikipedia]

Bureau of Land Management provides an interface to convert between PLSS and the universal system of latitude & longitude, but it's hard to call it a user friendly tool.

This website is a wrapper on their API that makes it way easier to use.
