The US database contains records on almost 2 million geographic names in the United States - from populated
places, schools, reservoirs, and parks to streams, valleys, springs, ridges, and every feature type except roads
and highways. Entries include information such as the federally recognized name for the feature; former names,
as well as variant spellings of the official name; the status of the names as determined by the U.S. Board on
Geographic Names; the county or counties in which each named feature is located; the geographic coordinates
(in degrees, minutes, and seconds, as well as decimal degrees) that locate the approximate center of an areal
feature or the mouth and source of a linear feature such as a stream; and the name(s) of the USGS cell(s)
(topographic map(s)) on which the feature may appear. Elevation, extent, and historical information are
available for some features

US Place Name Data contains the following information about a
selected geographic feature:

          - Federally recognized feature name,
          - Feature type, 
          - Elevation (where available), 
          - Estimated 1994 population of
          incorporated cities and towns, 
          - State(s) and county(s) in which the
          feature is located, 
          - Latitude and longitude of the
          feature location, 
          - List of USGS 7.5-minute x
          7.5-minute topographic maps on
          which the feature is shown, and 
          - Names other than the federally
          recognized name by which the
          feature may now or have been
          known.
