US (non-Alaskan) Place Names -- Reference
« on: March 16, 2013, 08:23:15 pm »
This topic is for the United States excluding Alaska.
We have a very large number of Alaskan place names, so we have created topics specifically for the state of Alaska: Alaskan Place Names -- Reference and Alaskan Place Names -- Discussion

Reading place names mentioned in the logbooks and locating the places can be challenging. So, we have created topics like this to help. In this topic we have links to US place name resources on the internet. We also have a Custom Google Earth map for the US, an Alphabetical list of US (non-Alaskan) place names found in the logbooks and Transcriber created maps.

You can make this topic better by contributing to the US (non-Alaskan) Place Names -- Discussion!

Note: Place names include lighthouses.

Transcriber created maps

A Google Map covering a specific ship or area is a good example of a much appreciated contribution. We will collect them here.

Alphabetical list

The following is a list of US (non-Alaskan) place names found in logbooks. Where possible, the name contains a link to more information.

Note that latitude and longitude are given in decimal degrees.
  • A latitude with no sign (positive) is in the northern hemisphere.
  • A latitude with a negative sign is in the southern hemisphere.
  • A longitude with no sign (positive) is in the eastern hemisphere.
  • A longitude with a negative sign is in the western hemisphere.

We have done our best to locate these places correctly, but there still may be errors. Remember that the same name is sometimes used for many places, so it is possible that the place listed here is not the place you are searching for. Sometimes the name of a place has changed over time or has simply been misspelled by the log keeper. We have included the variants we have seen in the logbooks and have also tried to include the current, standard name. When there are multiple entries for the same place, the information is only included with one.

Useful hints about sorting the list of place names can be found here: How to sort a list by latitude and longitude
