Service Description: An automated inventory of the names and locations of physical and cultural geographic features located throughout West Virginia. Named features include airport, area, bar, basin, bay, bend, bridge, building, canal, cape, cave, cemetery, channel, church, civil, cliff, crossing, dam, falls, flat, forest, gap, hospital, island, lake, locale, military, mine, oil field, other, park, pillar, post office, populated place, range, reservoir, ridge, rock, school, spring, summit, swamp, tower, trail, tunnel, valley, and woods. The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN), contains information about physical and cultural geographic features. An updated dataset was received, customized, and published by WVGISTC in January 2006. In 2011 the WVGISTC downloaded a newer version (August 2011) of the GNIS database. The pipe-delimited ("|") text was converted using ArcGIS to a shapefile, which was then sorted into additional historical and current versions.
