NEW MAPPING CHALLENGE: Illinois Schools

Our next Mapping Challenge is also focused on getting data ready in advance of upcoming US Topo revisions. This challenge will be by far our biggest yet: all Schools in Illinois. This includes all of our school feature types: General School, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, Technical / Trade School, and College / University. 

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 School facilities before participating. Volunteers who participate will be recognized on this page and also tweeted on The National Map Twitter account.

Before starting, you may want to check out some of the common questions and answers posted about Schools on our Q&A page. If you haven't edited Schools yet (or lately), we also recommend you review specifics about editing Schools in the user guide, especially the Resources section, which explains what types of websites are authoritative and what types are not. There are several very informative articles about editing Schools in our May 2017 newsletter, so check that out too.

With over 3,143 points that need to be reviewed, this challenge will probably take a while. We will run the challenge until the end of October. 

Good news! The interactive status map should be online sometime next week! That will allow you to more easily find the points that need to be edited. In the meantime, below are two static maps of the status of the points currently, and the locations of the schools by category of school.

Happy Mapping!
