This challenge is moving along with another 50 points added! 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 01/13/22 and 01/20/22. Volunteers added almost 50 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!
