Gazetteers for location. The finding of localities and of the coordinates of longitude and latitude required to plot them on a distribution map is so time- and patience-consuming to the botanist, that we were happy to get wind of a collection of Gazetteers containing just these data. For instance: TJIBODAS STRM 6 38 S 107 14 E 474 11. This STReaM occurs in Java (code number 474) on the topographical map series indicated under code number 11. The above item can be found in the 2-volume Gazetteer no 13: Indonesia, Netherlands New Guinea, Portuguese Timor (1955), containing 50,000 names. Similar books exist of other countries, all over the world; part of them out of print, but new editions frequently appear, some of them costing a few dollars, others free on request. A catalogue is available with the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, Office of Geography, Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C. 20240, U.S.A.; communications to the Executive Secretary.
