GNIS

The files listed below for the various states, districts, and territories are compressed versions of files from the Geographic Name Information System (GNIS) at the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

These files have the preferred format for use with Place'n'Time and XViewSDTS. Use as follows:

  1. Choose the file for your area of interest.
  2. Download it to the directory where Place-n-Time or XViewSDTS looks for GNIS data. By default that is /usr/local/share/usgs/gnis/ but if you are unsure, check the entry for gnis_directory= in your run control file (such as /etc/placentimerc.first or ~/.placentime/placentimerc).
  3. Decompress the file. For example:
    cd /usr/local/share/usgs/gnis/
    gzip -d AK.gz
