Miscellaneous Information


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 code 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 Ninole: 362658

GNIS ID for Hawaii: 1779782

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

Lat:   19° 56' 20"   (or 19.94°)

Lon:   -155° 10' 8"   (or -155.17°)  

Regional Codes ...

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

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

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

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

ZIP Codes ...

While some people have used a ZIP code to identify a community, the purpose of the ZIP code was to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although the ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Ninole, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Ninole. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code are defined by the needs of the USPS and can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

The ZIP code for Ninole: 96773<1>
