  • Abstract: 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.

Place Areas (Zoom Locations)

GNIS

This data contains polygons of commonly used places in mapping. It was created by AGRC from multiple sources including the GNIS point, municipalities, counties, political districts, zipcodes, etc.. The dataset is named ZoomLocations since the names and geometries can be used to zoom to common areas on a map with widgets like Sherlock.
