This data set includes cities in the United States including Puerto Rico
and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These cities were collected from the 1970
National Atlas of the United States. Where applicable, U.S. Census Bureau
codes for named populated places were associated with each name to allow
additional information to be attached. The Geographic Names Information
System (GNIS) was also used as a source for additional information. This
is a revised version of the October, 2002 data set.
These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the
national level, and for large regional areas. The data should be
displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data.
