Mapping Challenge Update (11/10/2020): City / Town Halls in IL & MO

Release Date:

Volunteers have been working in the Chicago metrpolitan area and contributed close to 200 points in the last week - SPECTACULAR!  This challenge is nearing completion, but there are still many points yet to be collected in the St. Louis metrpolitan area and throughout Illinois and Missouri. See our spatial analyses for tips on which communities these might be. 

See our original post from September 24, 2020 for tips and tricks.

Remaining Communities  

We performed a spatial overlay between US Census's Incorporated Places dataset and all the city / town hall features collected to date. There are still several incorporated places in these states that do not yet have a city/town hall point inside their bounaries; the maps below highlight these communities.  NOTE that this does not mean every one of these communities is missing a point.  It is possible that some of these communities do not have a building that fits our definition of a city / town hall while others may have already been collected but their city / town hall falls outside of their corporate boundary.  Please help us research these communities and determine if a city / town hall exists!
