Japan Rivers and Named Features

The Japan Placename Search Engine contains the GNS placename dataset, with more than 50,000 named features. For those interested, the entire dataset can be downloaded here in ESRI Shapefile format.

You will want to sort out the Feature Type Designations (in the DSG field) using the online data dictionary.

We are also posting the DCW Japan Rivers dataset for downloading here in ESRI coverage format.
