The database is the official repository of foreign place-name decisions approved by the US BGN. Approximately 20,000 of the database's features are updated monthly.

This site was created by the Global Plants Initiative (GPI) team at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to support the digitisation of herbarium specimens. Here we aim to compile resources about collectors, identify their signatures and locate unusual or historical localities.
The goal of the Historical Topographic Map Collection is to scan all scales and all editions of the more than 200,000 topographic maps published by the USGS since the inception of the topographic mapping program in 1884.
Publications in this collection include research monographs, journals, conference proceedings, or books. Research results behind these publications have been peer reviewed to ensure the best quality science.
In partnership with Federal, State, and local agencies, the Board provides a conduit through which uniform geographic name usage is applied and current names data are promulgated.
