A special case of a quarter- corner. "To subdivide a section into the opposite quarter-section corners. The point of intersection of the lines thus run be the corner common to several quarter sections, or the legal center of section." (BLM, 1973, paragraph 3-87) The above definition is sometimes termed the "federal center quarter-section corner" and applies to BLM cadastral surveys.
