PlaceNames.com – Guide of Countries, Cities and Regions
This site comes in quite handy when you are searching for a specific country, city, town, village, lake, island or any other geographic and administrative place. Once you type in whatever it is you are looking for, all the matching results will appear and they will be divided and ordered by state.
On the right of the matching result it shows what it is; a dam, a hospital, a school, a river and so on. Each of these results is a link, that when it is clicked on the site will provide its latitude, longitude and elevation. In addition to this information, the corresponding city and country is also provided, as well as related links, maps and photos, and a weather and climate link. This tool only works for places within USA; however additional countries will be added in the following weeks. It must be said that the site’s design is rather poor leaving room for substantial improvement.
