A Dictionary of Geographic Positions in the United States

Description: From introduction: For several years the Division of Topography of the United States Geological Survey has been engaged in compiling positions determined within the United States which are believed to be of sufficient accuracy for use in the preparation of its maps. This compilation has been found extremely useful in the office, and it is believed that its usefulness will be greatly extended by placing it before the public. This list comprises between 9,000 and 10,000 positions. To publish it in extenso, with descriptions of the stations, their latitudes and longitudes, the distances and azimuths to neighboring stations, and the methods of determination, would extend this bulletin beyond all reasonable limits. To avoid making too bulky a volume, it has been decided to publish merely the latitudes and longitudes, with abbreviations indicating the authority, and references to the publications in which other data relating to the positions may be found.
