The caption for G7962.H5 in Classification web (CT 96238582) has the
$z G7962 $a .H5 $h Japan. Regions, natural features, islands,
etc. $j Hokkaido
with $j entered as "Hokkaido," with the last date of transaction of this
record specified as May 24, 1995.
In turn, the caption for G7963.H6 in Classification web (CT 00265842) has
$z G7963 $a .H6 $h Japan. Prefectures (Ken), etc. $j Hokkaido
with $j also entered as "Hokkaido," with the last date of transaction of
this record specified as Mar. 6, 2003.
While it is recognized that G7962 is for islands, etc. and that G7963 is
for prefectures, it is wondered how these two LC classification numbers
G7962.H5 and G7963.H6, both for Hokkaido, should actually be
differentiated in assignment from each other. According to Columbia
gazetteer of the world online (viewed Aug. 1, 2005), the Island of
Hokkaido is "coterminous with Hokkaido prefecture."
Thank you very much.
