This summer, APHIS launched a new system using Google mapping technology that will enable
our staff to quickly map locations near a suspect herd. With this program, we can draw a ring around an infectious herd
and quickly find neighboring herds within a specified distance—another enhancement for tracing.

Premises Registration will be an "Official" USDA unique seven Character identifier.
In the New User Guide it states on Page 22:
The premises identification number (PIN) is assigned permanently to a geophysical location.
If an owner or entity sells his/her farm, the next operators of the premises use the original premises identification number
that had been assigned to that location. If the seller buys a new location to build a new operation that never had livestock,
he/she would register that location and obtain a new premises identification number (PIN).
Premises Identification = Encumbrance
