Is this the equivalent, but with more detail? http://geonames.nga.mil/gns/html/namefiles.html <http://geonames.nga.mil/gns/html/namefiles.html> "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.
