I was looking at peaks in Glacier National Park. There are quite a few 
that have been imported from GNIS. NPS has also a database of such 
peaks. My issue is that the databases are not consistent. If I take for 
instance Mt Cleveland:

GNIS:  48.9250000 , -113.8480556  3175m (10417ft)
NPS:   48.9227541, -113.8472346   3190m (10466ft)

That's a little bit more than 1/8 mile off horizontal and 50 ft off 
vertical. Is there any other source of information to try and figure out 
what is the correct data?
