Abstract
A system of 'geosection' index numbers is proposed for cross-indexing many different kinds of environmental data. These index numbers basically identify the horizontal sections of the Geosphere to which any particular environmental data pertain. They thereby provide especially for identifying observing stations, and hence for ordering indexes, tabulations and files of environmental data from observing stations in a widely applicable and systematically interrelated way. These 'geosection' subdivisions of the Geosphere are also interchangeably representable with either the common alpha-numeric or more pictographic forms of the numerals or indices that make up such index numbers.
