This area of France, formerly a per se "département", is of note in that it is the titular designation of many organizations, conferences, and so forth. Also, in the context of inventor location, when further data is lacking within patent originals, "France (Seine)" is the only information on hand, with specific Parisian addresses almost invariably coming up later. It is key in that it this administrative unit is often the most precise location data, within France, given on French patent originals, whereas Hungarian patent originals pertaining to French inventors will give the city, and British originals will give the address of the inventor, the city, and more. In cases in which we lack further data, it is to be noted that "Seine" quite often, though far from exclusively, refers to a Parisian location, which we often determine later.
