NEW (and different!) Mapping Challenge – Emergency Facilities within the New Madrid Seismic Zone for The Great Shakeout

On October 15, millions of people all over the world will participate in the Great Shakeout. In support of earthquake preparedness, TNMCorps will be holding a one week mapping challenge in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) in support of the Great Central US Shakeout. Let’s see how many emergency response(Fire Station/EMS Station, Law Enforcement, Hospital/Medical Center, Ambulance Service) and School points we can update between Sunday, October 11 and Saturday October 17th. 

As always, make sure you're familiar with what we are collecting for those stucture types before participating. Volunteers who contribute in the Challenge area will be recognized on this page and also tweeted on The National Map Twitter account. 

Happy Mapping!

Take time to visit the Great Shakeout’s webpage and sign up to participate!  The site has a wealth of resources and information about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness.

New Mapping Challenge - Tennessee Law Enforcement Facilities! / TN Prisons Challenge Finished!

Way to go mapping all of the Prison/Correctional Facilities in Tennessee! We went from zero points for that feature type in TN to sixteen, and not only were they all added and edited, they were also all peer reviewed and some advanced edited, so they are all ready to go into the National Structures Dataset and The National MapThanks to HGeisler, Cartograsaurus, and ThatJenn

Tennessee US Topo maps are scheduled to be updated soon, so for the new challenge we are sticking with Tennessee. This time we would like you to help us edit all Law Enforcement points in Tennessee. This includes verifying or updating the existing points, adding missing points, and removing obsolete points. Although a few have been edited, there are 364 existing Law Enforcement points in TN (see map below), so this is a big challenge. Let's get these points updated before the US Topo maps for the state are updated!

Also, don't forget that you can participate in mapping challenges as a standard editor, a peer reviewer (once the points have been edited), or an advanced editor. As always, make sure you're familiar with what we are collecting for Law Enforcement before participating.

Volunteers who contribute in the challenge area will be recognized on this page and also tweeted on The National Map Twitter account (with permission).

Good luck and happy mapping!

New Mapping Challenge - Tennessee Prisons/Correctional Facilities!

The new mapping challenge covers a bigger area than any other we've done and is also quite a bit different. This time around we are asking you to map all prison/correctional facility structures in the entire state of Tennessee.

HOWEVER, there are no existing prison/correctional facility points in Tennessee, so you'll be adding all new points. This might make things a bit easier, because you can find an authoritative source and just go through and add each feature as a new point. Make sure to check for an existing point though, in case another volunteer has already added it. Also, make sure you are familiar with what we are/are not collecting for this structure type before beginning.

We recommend using these sites as authoritative resources: 

Federal Bureau of Prisons

Tennessee Department of Corrections 

Happy Mapping!

OK Panhandle Post Office Mapping Challenge Finished!
