Area code 506 is the telephone area code in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, encompassing the entire province. The code was created in 1955, when New Brunswick and Newfoundland split from the 902 area code; Newfoundland and Labrador split to its own 709 area code in early 1962. Besides 506 & 709, 807 & 867 are the other Canadian area codes to still use 7-digit dialling and have yet to be overlaid. The incumbent local exchange carrier in 506 is Bell Aliant, which was produced from a merger that included NBTel.

    Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

    A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
