This presentation gives an overview of several gazetteers that provide standard names for places both inside and outside the US. Several figures are also shown illustrating how close place names from a gazetteer are relative to locations extracted from the metadata of LTER Network research sites.
This presentation was given in July 2019 at the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held in Tacoma, Washington.
