Various Identification Codes ...

GNIS Codes ...

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. The BGN will usually recognize an existing name or, when necessary, establish a name for a geographic feature (such as a mountain, lake, river, stream, city, town, village, dam, bridge, etc).

The BGN names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and it is the official Federal repository. The GNIS is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent numeric identifier has been assigned for each name in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive and it is intended that they are to be used by all departments of the Federal Government:

GNIS ID for Aucocisco: 1878706

GNIS ID for Cumberland County: 581288

GNIS ID for Maine: 1779787

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies worked together to create a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Aucocisco. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  23 (Maine)
County Code:  005 (Cumberland County)

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Aucocisco is located in Region #1 (the Northeast Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Aucocisco is located in Division #1 (the New England Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Aucocisco is located in Region I (Region 1).
