I am looking for a database of place names which would be non-Chinese place names listing their transliteration into Chinese. When I view Google Maps on my iPhone with the phone language set to Chinese, it provides a Chinese name for every small town and city. I anticipate this data must be avaliable somewhere potentially through a free data source or API for map developers.
I don't know a lot about GPS data and the data which feeds map labeling like this, but I did find this site for GNIS data. I've tried searching many terms including "GNIS data" and "Chinese" but I am always finding only Chinese names of Chinese places. Hoping to find something which is basically these files but in Chinese.
Does anyone have an idea where I could find this? Any help is appreciated!
