Is this the equivalent, but with more detail?

"Foreign geographic names data is freely available. A suitable citation note 
is: "Toponymic 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. 
More information is available at the Maps and Geodata link at www.nga.mil 
<http://www.nga.mil/>. The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency name, 
initials, and seal are protected by 10 United States Code Section 425.”

It’s not clear to me whether the citation is optional.
