Okay, here's a serious question for the GIS/GCDB experts: The BLM “PID” (Point identification ID) used by the GCDB system is explained in the link below:

www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/nv/cadastral_survey/documents.Par.46227.File.dat/nvgcdb.pdf

Okay FINE! It's a SIX-digit code that works dandy when there is ONLY ONE [say] Northeast Corner of Section 10. What the linked document FAILS to address, is situations where there are TWO (or MORE) Northeast Corners of Section 10.
