Mapping Challenge Update (06/17/21): City / Town Halls in IN

June 17, 2021

This challenge is almost finished! Approximately 70 edits came in since last week, a majority of which were new points - NICE WORK!  See our spatial analyses for tips on which communities may still remain. 

The original post from May 27th, 2021 has additional 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. We then limited the results to communities with a population greater than 600 since larger communities are more likely to have their own designated city hall. The results reveal a few incorporated places that do not yet have a city/town hall point inside their boundaries but may be large enough to support such a structure; the map below highlights 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 their corporate boundary.  

It's also important to note that this analysis is limited to incorporated places and does not include townships.  

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