Abstract:
This spreadsheet contains a listing of each U.S. County or Equivalent Entity with reference to the UTM or State Plane Coordinate Zone that would normally or legally be applied to datasets located within the county.
Purpose:
The purpose of the spreadsheet is provide a reference tool to identify the UTM Zone or State Plane Coordinate Zone which may be active for datasets located within a particular county. Historical reference is shown to the NAD27 system to help identify older datasets.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The spreadsheet was checked and edited for spelling and omission errors.
Completeness_Report:
The spreadsheet has been checked for geographical completeness against the United States Census Bureau's 1990 county.txt file. In December 2004, a review of the FIPS PUB 6-4 indicated that certain changes had occurred and that a revision was necessary for the spreadsheet to reflect the changes to certain counties as cited in Change Notices 2 thru 7, both inclusive. In summary, 2 county equivalents were added, Yakutat Borough, AK and Broomfield County, CO. 2 county equivalents were renamed, the Census Area Skagway-Yakutat-Angoon, AK was renamed to Skagway-Hoonan-Angoon and Dade County, FL was renamed to Miami-Dade County, FL. 3 county equivalents were deleted, the Independent Cities of Clifton Forge, VA and South Boston, VA reverted to town status and Yellowstone National Park, MT was found to be legally situated within Gallatin and Park counties.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Research, using online legal sources, was performed to identify individual state codes which made reference or declaration of the State Plane Coordinate System. Where pertinent code was found, a listing of the county names associated within each system was compiled.

For states, where no SPCS legislation was found, the online control point lookup application at the NGS website was used to find the control data sheet for a control point near the county centroid. The coordinate system reference on the data sheet was used for the zone assignment. The U.S. Census Bureau's counties.txt file was used to obtain the county names and centroids. The counties.txt file was also used for comparison to verify completeness, in that a reference was made for each county or equivalent entity.

The NGS publication "State Plane Coordinate System of 1983 - NOAA Manual NOS NGS 5" contained a map depicting the U.S. States and Counties along with the State Plane Zone boundaries for the 1983 coordinate systems. The zone assignments on this map were compared with those determined by statute and differences are noted as follows: 1) Pulaski County, AR, is clearly shown to be aggregated within the South Zone, as depicted in the Manual. This county is included with the North Zone based on the Coordinate System legislation ( 15-21-302 ). 2) Valencia County, NM, is clearly shown to be aggregated within the West Zone, as depicted in the Manual. This county included in the Central Zone based on the Coordinate System legislation ( 47-1-49 ).

A similar map for the 1927 Coordinate Systems is no longer available from the USGS or NGS. Portions of an existing map were copied so that the 1927 Zone assignments could be identified for Nebraska and South Carolina.

The UTM Zone assignments shown in the spreadsheet are based on the location of the county centroid.
