Another 35 points have been added since our last update - SPECTACULAR! See our spatial analysis for tips on remaining communities. 

The original post from April 7, 2022 has tips and tricks for this challenge. 

TNMCorps Mapping Challenge: A before-and-after image showing edits to city/town halls in Arkansas between 04/14/22 and 04/21/2022. Volunteers added over 35 new points during this timeframe. This challenge is nearing completion. 

Remaining Communities  

If you’ve been following us for a while, you may recall that Arkansas was one of the earlier states to have its own designated challenge. You may also recall that Arkansas was one of the first states for which we provided hints about remaining communities. However, as noted above, there are still several communities that this first challenge didn’t catch so we’re revisiting this state to capture any omissions from the original challenge.   

To identify these communities, we overlaid US Census’s Incorporated Places dataset with 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 then limited the results to communities with a population greater than 500 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!
