Utah GNIS Place Names contains the latest release of the GNIS dataset for the state of Utah. The dataset consists of point locations with corresponding feature names. All point entities are categorized by feature type.

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.
