Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Courthouses - Finished!

It looks to us like courthouses may be finished (for now)! If you notice something missing in a state that hasn't been reviewed yet (i.e. hasn't turned yellow), make sure to add it.

THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who participated in this pilot project!!! We will be rolling out recognition badges for participation in collecting courthouses soon.

titleMapping Challenge Updates - Courthouses: ALMOST FINISHED!

6/13/18 -------------------------------------------------------------

Courthouses - We're almost there!

Here is an updated status map showing the courthouse points collected to-date. We are so close to wrapping up courthouse collection. Help us finish up Arkansas, and if you're up for it, glance around and make sure all counties were collected in the states that aren't yellow yet.

If you're new to this, make sure to check out the courthouse section of our user guide for an overview of this pilot project and editing guidelines.

And be on the lookout for some recognition badges designed to specifically recognize those who've contributed to our pilot study!
