Standard Finder

Family Search Labs Standard Finder is a standardized location database that provides access to standardized information for names, locations, and dates, and is designed to to help you determine exact spellings

Results will include place name variants, place type, place time period, standard text, culture, iso-code, geo-code (latitude and longitude) and an identification number for the place name.

Standard Finder can be of assistance in determining proper spellings of locations, checking if locations exist as well as determining alternate name spellings/variants to expand research.

It is fascinating to click on a result, and view the ancestral place on a map along with physical features and other nearby places.
