Volunteers contributed over 100 edits since last week. The number of points awaiting peer review has also significantly gone down - NICE WORK! See our spatial analysis for tips on remaining communities.

The original post from December 23, 2021 has additional tips and tricks. 

TNMCorps Mapping Challenge: A before-and-after image showing edits to city halls in NY, NJ, & PA between 01/06/22 and 01/13/22. Volunteers edited almost 120 points during this timeframe.

Remaining Communities  

We compared US Census’s Incorporated Places dataset and all the city / town hall features collected to date. The results help us identify communities that do not yet have a city / town hall point within their corporate boundaries. We’ve limited the results to communities with a population greater than 1,000 since larger communities are more likely to have their own designated city hall. The map below highlights communities that may still need to have a city / town hall point collected. 

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 their corporate boundary.   

Please help us research these communities and determine if a city / town hall exists!
