Over 14,000 hours of time saved
No one wants to spend hours – or even days – manually researching, scraping data sources and doing complex conversions just to get a list of cities. Our database is designed so you can simply download the information you need and get to work in minutes, freeing you up to focus on what’s actually important to you. Since we launched in 2011 we estimate that our database has saved businesses and individuals over 14,000 hours of manual work.
Comprehensive, accurate and reliable
You can be confident that the data is correct. Our list of all US cities uses information from official sources only — including the US Census Bureau, US Geological Survey and American Community Survey — and all currently incorporated cities, towns, villages, townships and boroughs in the United States are included. The database is completely refreshed every quarter and undergoes regression testing and quality assurance checks before each release.
There are no limits on the number of devices or users, so you are free to work and grow without worrying about artificial ceilings. Our ‘Business’ package also allows you to use the data for business and commercial purposes with almost no restrictions. Take a look at the available packages.
