Hi All:

I have an editor friend who is in need of an accessible online English language atlas to verify the English versions of Spanish names. I guess it doesn't need to be an atlas persay; a gazetteer would also do. Can anyone recommend one of two or more?

Wikipedia often works quite well too.

The Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names is another good option: http://www.getty.edu...cabularies/tgn/
