History of Standard Time in the U.S. Standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads on 18 November 1883.
Before then, time of day was a local matter, and most cities and towns used some form of local solar time, maintained by some well-known clock (for example, on a church steeple or in a jeweler's window).

Time zones are areas of the Earth that follow the same definition of time.
Time zones are generally centered on meridians of a longitude that is a multiple of 15º; however as the map below shows, the shapes of time zones can be quite irregular because of boundaries of countries.

 Z-Time - by Harold F. Maybeck
This made the zone centered on 15° East longitude, time zone "A", the time zone centered on 30° East longitude, time zone "B", and so on.
The first zone centered on 15° West longitude became time zone "N", the next time zone west centered on 30° West longitude became time zone "O", etc, etc. Approaching the International Date Line from the east, Bowditch designated the remaining "half zone" from 172.5° West longitude to 180° longitude as time zone "Y".
This notation, "Z", is appended to times on most navigational, meteorological, and astronomical charts today to indicate that the time of the chart is in "Greenwich Mean Time".

 Time Zone Resource in OWL
We have been referring to time zones, but in fact it is more convenient to work in terms of what we might call the "time standard" that is used in a time zone.
For each time standard, there is a zone, or geographical region, and a time of the year in which it is used for describing local times.
We have developed a time zone resource [5] in OWL for not only the US but also the entire world, including three parts: the time zone ontology file [6], the US time zone instance file [7], and the world time zone instance file [8].

 A Suggestion For Time Zone Handling In Drupal | drupal.org
The GMT (actually, UTC to be exact) is an important piece of this: if two computers running Unix are in different time zones, but are syncing to an external clock, they should be have the same number for the current time.
The servers, though, have a notion of their own time zone, and use libraries to convert from the UTC time number into the current local time when they format a date for an application.
This won't work for a site that needs to allow users to set their own time zones, or needs to post events in multiple regions, but for a site serving a community in a single geographic area, it works fine.
