The Federal government has assigned various identifying codes to each community, county and state. At one time or another, the US Census Bureau has used one (or more) of the following identifiers when referring to either Burnet County or the community of Spicewood:

The current system of identification is called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The following GNIS codes relate to Spicewood:

GNIS ID for Texas: 1779801

The FIPS Codes ...

An earlier (and largely obsolete) identification method was called the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS):

State Code: 48 (Texas)

County Code: 053 (Burnet County)

Place Code: 69512 (Spicewood)

State & County Code: 48/053 (Texas / Burnet County)

State & Place Code: 48/69512 (Texas / Spicewood)

Misc. Census Codes ...

Spicewood is located in Census Region #3 (the South Region) and Division #7 (the West South-Central Division).

The US Postal Service ZIP Code ...

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 Spicewood, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Spicewood. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

The ZIP code for Spicewood: 78669<4>

Census ZCTA Codes ...

The US Census Bureau created statistical entities that they call ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) and these ZCTAs are frequently confused with the ZIP codes that come from the US Postal Service (USPS).

ZCTAs were first created for the 2000 Census and at that time, they were based upon the USPS ZIP codes. While largely covering the same areas, the boundaries of a ZCTA do not necessarily match the boundaries of a postal ZIP code with the same number. For example, while a postal ZIP code can cross a county or state line, a Census ZCTA can not. They should be treated as separate entities with no correlation between them.

For more information about the various Federal identification codes, please visit our Misc Page for Spicewood.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Spicewood. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Spicewood

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spicewood. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.4755, Longitude: -98.1564     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Spicewood have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
