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, chose a new 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 Jack Wade: 1404039

GNIS ID for Alaska: 1785533

GPS Location - GNIS Coordinates ...

An important aspect of the GNIS code is that it assigns a GPS location (the latitude/longitude) to the geographic feature. This location is simply a point on the map and does not represent the size or shape of the feature. In the case of Jack Wade, it is a point within Jack Wade that might be a post office, the city hall or simply an intersection - the point should really be considered arbitrary and only indicating a general location.

For Jack Wade, the GNIS GPS location is given as:

Lat:   64° 9' 15"   (or 64.2°)

Lon:   -141° 27' 34"   (or -141.46°)   [Map]

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Jack Wade would have been located in Region #4 (the West Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Jack Wade would have been located in Division #9 (the Pacific Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Jack Wade would have been located in Region X (Region 10).
