Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) data is available for download via the U.S. Board on Geographic Names website. You can also download names using a query in Search Domestic Names. GNIS includes official names, their location attributes, variant names, and other data, which can be displayed, printed, and downloaded (in csv format) up to a maximum of 2,000 records.
GNIS data can also be downloaded via The National Map Downloader. Define an area of interest on the map, then put a checkmark next to the “Names” category on the left and select the subcategory. Click “Search Products” to get a list of downloadable products. GNIS Map Services are also available. This provides direct access to the Names layers and includes display and download capabilities. This data is updated bi-monthly.
