FIPS place code
FIPS place codes are a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard for geographic coding of human settlements in the United States. They are used in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and are also used in this encyclopedia.
Please note that FIPS codes are not the same thing as ZIP Codes.
