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

We've added Spanish Camp to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Spanish Camp - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Spanish Camp, 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, establish 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 identification number 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 Spanish Camp: 2033879

GNIS ID for Wharton County: 1384026

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 Spanish Camp:

Place (Community) Code:  69392
State Code:  48 (Texas)
County Code:  481 (Wharton 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:  48/69392
State/County Code:  48/481

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
Wharton County:    48/481   1384026
Spanish Camp:    48/69392   2033879

Regional Codes ...

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

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

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

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Spanish Camp 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 Spanish Camp, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
