[Talk-us] GNIS - All Feature_Classes Imported?

Thanks for your reply.

Does anyone have an issue if I work on adding these for Colorado?  The
GNIS defines a "Pillar" (I misspoke when I said Pinnacle) as

Pillar 	Vertical, standing, often spire-shaped, natural rock formation
(chimney, monument, pinnacle, pohaku, rock tower).

tagstat (http://tagstat.hypercube.telascience.org/tagdetails.php?tag=natural)
shows that "natural:rock" is being used.  Would that be appropriate in
this case?
