Fuzzy Gazetteer

Language problems and illegible records can result in inaccuracies that sometimes lead librarians off on wild goosechases for places that don't exist...that's when the Fuzzy Gazetteer comes in handy: in its own words, "The Fuzzy Gazetteer enables you to find geographic features even when you do not know their exact names. A list of similar names is returned, web-linked to the JRC Digital Map Archive of the European Commission. Searching 7,205,433 place names world-wide."
