The National Map Corps
(TNMCorps) editor is
going offline July 9th
to make way for our
new and improved web map editor coming in early August!
If you tried to go to our editor and were redirected
here, have no fear! Our new editor (at a new web address)
will be coming soon. Keep your eyes peeled for an email
coming in early August with more information. And, if you
just can’t wait, check out our June
newsletter for more information on what is to come.
Here’s a sneak peek at the new editor:
New to The National Map Corps?
TNMCorps is a crowdsourcing mapping program with
volunteers successfully editing structures in all 50
States, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Structures
are one of the layers in The
National Map and include schools, hospitals, post
offices, police stations, cemeteries, and other important
Using a web-based mapping editor TNMCorps volunteers
collect and/or improve structures data by adding new
features, removing obsolete points, and correcting
Both newly collected and modified point features become
part of the USGS National Structures Database, The
National Map, and ultimately U.S. Topo Maps. Anyone with
an interest in contributing can volunteer. Through their
participation, volunteers are making significant
contributions to the USGS's ability to provide the Nation
with accurate mapping information.
It is easy to sign up and get started!! All you need is
access to the internet, an email address, and a
willingness to learn. However since we are currently
transitioning to a new editor, check back here in early
August for more information on how to get started editing
using our brand new editor!
