GNIS will be unavailable beginning at 3:00 pm Mountain Time Friday, April 19 for system maintenance. The system is expected to be available by Monday, April 22. Users will also be unable to download files during this time.

Information about foreign geographic feature names can be obtained from the GEOnet Names Server (GNS), developed and maintained by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
