Nevada Places.

The source data were downloaded in late 1999 from the U.S. Geological Survey's Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), and nominally represent all named features on 1:24,000 (or largest available scale) U.S.G.S. topographic maps in Nevada. See the GNIS online metadata for further information on scope, origin, and production. Feature coordinates were used with ArcView® to create a corresponding shapefile. Attribute fields representing location data already available to us as separate GIS data sets (such as map quadrangles, counties, etc.), or representing other data that we had no need or ability to interpret or use, were removed for compactness. A single field (see CLASS below) was then added and populated to provide a higher level of classification for the feature types included, to facilitate representation on map legends and other data uses.
