    Perhaps Jonathan McDowell's "Geostationary Orbit Catalog" would
    be useful.  It's in two parts, and besides identification, the 
    second part includes the following data:
    ] * (7) GEO status code [categorized by rate of drift]
    ] * Orbital period, minutes 
    ] * Perigee x apogee (km) x inclination (deg) 
    ] * Longitude of ascending node, deg 
    ] * Geostationary longitude, deg E or W 
    ] * Drift rate in degrees/day 
    The above and the links to the two parts of the catalog are on
    this page:
