The location of Branch School









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

We've added Branch School to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Branch School, 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 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 numeric 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 Branch School: 1918038

GNIS ID for Addison County: 1461757

GNIS ID for Vermont: 1779802

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created 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.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Branch School. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  50 (Vermont)
County Code:  001 (Addison County)

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

Lat:   43° 55' 41"   (or 43.93°)

Lon:   -72° 53' 2"   (or -72.88°)   [Map]

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Branch School would have been located in Region #1 (the Northeast Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Branch School would have been located in Division #1 (the New England Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Branch School would have been located in Region I (Region 1).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Branch School would have been located in Region I (Region 1).

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 Branch School, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
