Description: The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), developed by the U.S.
Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Board on Geographic
Names, contains information on approximately 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
each feature's location by State, county, and geographic coordinates. The
purpose of the GNIS data base development was to promote geographic feature
name standardization and to serve as an official repository of domestic
geographic names information. Information on foreign geographic feature names
can be obtained from the GEOnet Names Server, which is developed and maintained
by the National Imagery Mapping Agency, formerly the Defense Mapping Agency.
