The National Map Corps News:

  • Getting Recognized for Volunteer Mapping Efforts: The National Map Corps has updated the recognition badges that are awarded for participation in the "crowdsourcing" mapping project. Volunteer "citizen scientists" who collect manmade structure data such as police stations, schools, hospitals and cemeteries, to provide more precise spatial data for the USGS web-based mapping products can earn points and virtual badges. Due to continuous project growth and popularity, TNMCorps has added more badge levels and revised the current awards. More than 160,000 points have been edited or verified to date. It’s easy to become a member, so join in the fun:
