The location of Soda Springs









So far, we have found very little information about Soda Springs. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Soda Springs to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Soda Springs - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Soda Springs, please Contact Us.


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 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 Soda Springs: 2033870

GNIS ID for Parker County: 1383969

GNIS ID for Texas: 1779801

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 Soda Springs:

Place (Community) Code:  68660
State Code:  48 (Texas)
County Code:  367 (Parker 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:  48/68660
State/County Code:  48/367

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 Texas:    48   1779801
Parker County:    48/367   1383969
Soda Springs:    48/68660   2033870

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Soda Springs would have been located in Region #3 (the South Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Soda Springs would have been located in Division #7 (the West South-Central Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Soda Springs would have been located in Region VI (Region 6).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Soda Springs would have been located in Region VI (Region 6).

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Soda Springs, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
