Mapping Challenge Update (01/13/22): City / Town Halls in NY, NJ & PA
The original post from December 23, 2021 has additional tips and tricks.
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!
