Description: 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.

Description: The National Map viewer is the USGS's geographic information system (GIS)
application which is designed to provide easy access to geospatial information.
The viewer is a Web-enabled portal to all of the geospatial information
contained in The National Map. This portal not only supports on-line access to
the geospatial information, but also allows the download of digital data and
creation of cartographic products.

Description: The National Map Elevation Query Web Services Overview

The National Map Elevation Query Web Service returns the elevation in feet or
meters for a specific latitude/longitude point from the USGS Seamless Elevation
data sets hosted at the EROS Data Center. The elevation values returned default
to the best-available (highest resolution) data source available at the
specified point. Alternately, this service may return the value from a
specified data source, or from all data sources. If unable to find data at the
requested point, this services returns an extremely large, negative value.
