This official compilation gathers together more than five thousand Rhode Island place names in one alphabetical sequence. The list includes political units of the state such as counties, towns and villages, as well as physical features, such as rivers, islands and even exposed rocks in the harbors. 

This reference aid was compiled specifically to provide guidance to state and federal cartographers in order to promote consistency of usage. The list provides about two thousand approved names, with cross-references to another three thousand "obsolete" names. In fact, these names may not be obsolete, but simply not accepted for official usage. For example, the entry for the approved name "Abbott Run" concludes with the parenthetical statement "(Not Abbots Run, Abbotts Run, nor Walcotts Run)." These last three names may have been, or might still be, perfectly acceptable in local usage, and might be found on older maps. They are not "incorrect."
