You can do the following:
1) you input the text file, use readLine() to read the lines in the text file one by one.
2) after that you can use stringTokenizer class. You get two tokens at each line.
3) Store the tokens in a data structure. for eg tree map: TreeMap<String, Integer> = new TreeMap<String, Integer>();
4) once you have all the values in the tree map, you can just get the value for a particular string. The map would have entires like: Located, 1 ; biosphere 2 and so on.
So for Located you will get the value 1.
I did this for my project. I had a text file with some numerical values which were required for some calculation. So i read the file, used StringTokenizer to get the tokens and stored them in the tree map.
