Geographic Profile
Sometimes we know one piece of geographic information but we need to know more. The Geographic Profile compares multiple spatial datasets and provides detailed geographic information from just one piece of data.

Some datasets included are: county boundaries, city boundaries, USGS quads, township/range/section, Water Management Districts, and the Geographic Name Information System (GNIS).

Here are sample questions that can be answered:
  1. I have a latitude-longitude coordinate. In what county is it located?
  2. In which county is the USGS "Arredondo" quad located?
  3. In which quad is my U.S. National Grid (USNG) coordinate located?
  4. I need a list of airports in Escambia County.
  5. Is this UTM coordinate in the State Plane East zone?
  6. In which Water Management District is my property located?

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names is a Federal body created in 1890 and established in its present form by Public Law in 1947 to maintain uniform geographic name usage throughout the Federal Government. The Board comprises representatives of Federal agencies concerned with geographic information, population, ecology, and management of public lands. Sharing its responsibilities with the Secretary of the Interior, the Board promulgates official geographic feature names with locative attributes as well as principles, policies, and procedures governing the use of domestic names, foreign names, Antarctic names, and undersea feature names.
