- http://geonames.usgs.gov/ The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS),
developed by the USGS in cooperation with the U.S. Board on Geographic Names
(BGN), contains information about almost 2 million physical and
cultural geographic features in the United States. The Federally
recognized name of each feature described in the data base is identified,
and references are made to a feature's location by State, county, and
geographic coordinates. The GNIS is our Nation's official repository of domestic
geographic names information. Information about foreign
geographic feature names can be obtained from the GEOnet
Names Server, developed and maintained by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency.
- The Antarctica Geographic Names
Data Base contains geographic names in Antarctica
which are approved by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names for use by the
site that provides topographical maps of sites in the U.S. Upon visiting the site you are presented
with an opportunity to select a site of your choice. A topo-map for
that site and surrounding area is provided. The site is good in that it seems to
know about remote and historical towns that no longer exist. At a deeper level on this site you can
subscribe to more extensive services.
MCC of OGS has not subscribed and probably will not. If you elect to subscribe you are on
your own. But the initial level
found on this site, which is free, is well worth the visit.
