The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN), local governments and other interested organizations. The GNIS contains information about physical and cultural geographic features in the United States and associated areas, both current and historical, but not including roads and highways. The goal of GNIS is to meet major national needs regarding geographic names and their standardization and dissemination.
