Abstract : This manual on the new National Location Code is published for the use of Federal, State and local civil defense and emergency planning officials with damage assessment, resource evaluation or shelter planning responsibilities. The manual is designed to serve users in two ways. First, it can be used as a convenient source for the geographic coordinates of new resources to be included in hand or computer damage assessment systems. Second, it provides, in a convenient form, the information on distribution of population that is required to prepare Region, State and local estimates of casualties resulting from actual or assumed enemy attack.
