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 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 Glenview: 242748

GNIS ID for San Diego County: 277301

GNIS ID for California: 1779778

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created 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.

The following FIPS codes apply to Glenview:

Place (Community) Code:  30182
State Code:  06 (California)
County Code:  073 (San Diego County)

Since the Place and County FIPS codes are not unique and can be repeated in other States, it's necessary to combine the State code with the Place and County FIPS codes to uniquely identify them - for example:

State/Place Code:  06/30182
State/County Code:  06/073

As already mentioned, the FIPS codes are to be replaced by the GNIS codes. The following reflect those changes:

 FIPS Code   translates to   GNIS Code
State of California:    06   1779778
San Diego County:    06/073   277301
Glenview:    06/30182   242748

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 Glenview, it is a point within Glenview 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 Glenview, the GNIS GPS location is given as:

Lat:   32° 49' 56"   (or 32.83°)

Lon:   -116° 54' 21"   (or -116.91°)   [Map]

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Glenview is located in Region #4 (the West Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Glenview is located in Division #9 (the Pacific Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Glenview is located in Region IX (Region 9).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Glenview is located in Region IX (Region 9).
