Welcome to the TopoQuest Place Finder!
This page includes search tools to find places and points of interest. The USGS GNIS
database (also known as the USGS Place Names Database) containing approximately 2 million names of populated places and other
landmarks is used by this search tool. Our copy of the database was last updated
in August 2011.
You can try searching for the name of a landmark, a natural feature of the land (like
mountains, lakes and rivers), populated places (towns and cities), and other manmade
features (dams, mines, trails and parks).
Note: You can leave the feature name blank to list all features in the selected state
of a particular feature type, or leave the feature type set to Any
and specify a name, but you can not leave the name blank and also leave the
feature type set to Any. That search would return every feature in the
selected state, which would be many thousands of search results!
We also have a direct list of place or feature types
