Although we found mention of Tippett during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Tippett was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..


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 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 Tippett: 845710

GNIS ID for White Pine County: 858615

GNIS ID for Nevada: 1779793

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.

The following FIPS codes apply to Tippett:

Place (Community) Code:  73200
State Code:  32 (Nevada)
County Code:  033 (White Pine 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:  32/73200
State/County Code:  32/033

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 Nevada:    32   1779793
White Pine County:    32/033   858615
Tippett:    32/73200   845710

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

Lat:   39° 52' 6"   (or 39.87°)

Lon:   -114° 20' 59"   (or -114.35°)   [Map]

Regional Codes ...

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

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Tippett is located in Division #8 (the Mountain Division).

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

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

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Tippett and then turned west". While Tippett could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Tippett as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Tippett could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

Since confusion between counties is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Nevada community named Tippett.
