DNC Review Lists

Quarterly Review Lists - all proposals pending before the Domestic Names Committee, released approximately in March, June, September, and December. 

Action List - status of all active proposals and all decisions made by the Domestic Names Committee in the previous 12 months.

Action List - updated October 14, 2021 (Excel spreadsheet)

Over the years as systems and applications have been updated, the location links embedded in the Review Lists no longer work as shown. Users may use the application of their choice or we suggest using the TopoView application. Go to Get Maps and at the Location tab, enter the coordinates in either decimal degrees or degrees-minutes-seconds. The location will be shown on the base map. Users can then select the map at the scale of interest to see the location on a USGS topographic map. Once GNIS is available we will instruct users how to view the location of interest in the new GNIS.
