GNS Search

This page describes how to generate a GNS Search query.

Clicking on the Search tab displays the GNS Search web page.  The simplest search is to specify a name in the Name field and then click the Search Database button.  The name may include the percent (%) wild card character that searches for 0 or more characters or the underline (_) wild card character that specifies a single character.  Single Name Search is the default option.

Click the Multiple Name Search option if multiple names are to be searched.   Each name should be on a separate line. Multiple names can be pasted into the expanded Name field from an external file.

When the Show ADM1 Names option is checked (default), the corresponding ADM1 Names are listed for selection. When the Show ADM1 Names option is unchecked, the ADM1 Names are not displayed and are not available for selection.

A ADM1 code can be selected to limit the results to just those records with a matching ADM1 Name value.

It is strongly recommended that one or more countries be selected from the scrollable list.  This helps to improve the database search speed.

Query Tips:

    When performing Export searches, the name can have 2 formats: reading order and reversed generics. An example of reading order is Del'ta Dunay. An example of reversed generics is Dunay, Del'ta. Searches producing results to the screen will always be in the reading order format.

    When querying the name is converted for each geographical region.  It is possible that the query will contain a search for six unique names.  This option searches the Sort Name (reading order and reversed generics) fields in the database.  The Sort Name field does not contain diacritics, and the name will have the diacritics removed during the conversion where a character mapping exists as defined by GNPS Character Set Conversion Table dated June 28, 2006.

    All searches containing a country or list of countries will search the feature and name country code database fields for a match.  If ADM1 codes are selected for a country, only the feature country code is searched for a match.

For example, searching Aruba for names starting with "A" would generate this basic query logic:

WHERE FEATURE_COUNTRY = 'AA' OR NAME_COUNTRY = 'AA' AND NAME LIKE 'A%'

Searching for names starting with 'A' in Afghanistan & ADM1 Code '19' and in Bahrain would generate this basic query logic:

WHERE (FEATURE_COUNTRY = 'AF' AND ADM1 = '19') OR (FEATURE_COUNTRY = 'BA' OR NAME_COUNTRY = 'BA') AND NAME LIKE 'A%'

    When querying by multiple Country Names and multiple ADM1 Names, select all Country Names before selecting the ADM1 Names.  The ADM1 Name list resets each time a Country Name is selected.  If the Show ADM1 Names option is unchecked, this is not an issue.

    A Historical record is defined as a feature with a termination date. Historical records are not automatically included in search results. To include Historical records, check Include Historical Records

    When a database search is initiated (GNS Search and GNS Export), a dialog containing the search criteria is displayed. Click the OK button to perform the search. Click the Cancel button to cancel the search. The dialog can be turned off by unchecking the Show Me My Query checkbox in the left pane (under Tools/Misc).

GNS Search

This default option provides search results in an HTML preview window displaying Name, Country, ADM1, Latitude/Longitude, MGRS, Feature Type and Map (MapQuest thumbnail).  In addition, GNS Additional Attributes can be accessed for the names search by clicking on the name.  A GNS search example is shown below, along with examples of the Additional Attributes view.
