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 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 Lee Hall: 1499651

GNIS ID for Virginia: 1779803

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

Lat:   37° 11' 30"   (or 37.19°)

Lon:   -76° 34' 17"   (or -76.57°)  

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Lee Hall is located in Region #3 (the South Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Lee Hall is located in Division #5 (the South Atlantic Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Lee Hall is located in Region III (Region 3).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Lee Hall is located in Region III (Region 3).
