Offshore marine place names and undersea feature places names official listing from December 2015 to July 2017 (NCEI Accession 0176604)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data package contains both the Marine Place Names as well as the Undersea Feature Places Names as published by MarineCadastre.gov. The Marine Place Names were extracted from the NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts. This data set contains the geographic place names for features in the U.S territorial waters and outer continental shelf.
The Undersea Feature Places Names were extracted from the GEOnet Names Server (GNS) which provides access to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's (NGA) and the U.S. Board on Geographic Names' (BGN) database of geographic feature names. The database is the official repository of foreign place-name decisions approved by the BGN. Geographic coordinates are approximate and are intended for general location. Place name information is based on the Geographic Names Database, containing official standard names approved by the United States Board on Geographic Names and maintained by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. The geographic names in this database are provided for the guidance of and use by the Federal Government and for the information of the general public. The names, variants, and associated data may not reflect the views of the United States Government on the sovereignty over geographic features.
Different marine place names are displayed depending on the scale you are zoomed into on the map.
