Gets a unique identification number for a geographical region, country, city, or location.

Namespace:  System.Globalization

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)]
public virtual int GeoId { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
A 32-bit signed number that uniquely identifies a geographical location.

The application should use the GeoId property to provide culture-specific services to customers. For example, the GeoId property can be used as a key to access a database record that contains specific information about a country/region.

This property value corresponds to the Windows GetUserGeoID function. For a list of geographical identifiers, see Table of Geographical Locations in the MSDN Library.

The following code example demonstrates the GeoId property.

// This example demonstrates the RegionInfo.EnglishName, NativeName,  
// CurrencyEnglishName, CurrencyNativeName, and GeoId properties. 

using System;
using System.Globalization;

{
    public static void Main() 
    {
    RegionInfo ri = new RegionInfo("SE"); // Sweden

    Console.Clear();
    Console.WriteLine("Region English Name: . . . {0}", ri.EnglishName);
    Console.WriteLine("Native Name: . . . . . . . {0}", ri.NativeName);
    Console.WriteLine("Currency English Name: . . {0}", ri.CurrencyEnglishName);
    Console.WriteLine("Currency Native Name:. . . {0}", ri.CurrencyNativeName);
    Console.WriteLine("Geographical ID: . . . . . {0}", ri.GeoId);
