This is a coded Map reference for a Degree Square with its origin at 3411 = AA
Latitude 33 will be equal to B, 32 = C, etc. with I = 26 degrees of latitude.
Longitude 12 = B, 13 = C, etc. with Q = 27 degrees of longitude.
Thus, the registration division 0IQ (zero IQ) refers to registration division in the Degree Square 2627.
