Cities and Towns
New editors should consider checking into the formal mentoring program available at no charge.

One of the most common errors when editing the maps is when an editor creates a road and does not confirm the road by setting the city and road name (or stating it has none).

Editing segment's City Field

When editing a segment's City field, use the incorporated name, or use the CDP (Census Designated Place) name when the place is locally known and/or more commonly recognized by that name. Segments outside of the official limits of incorporated or CDP areas should have the "None" box checked instead. Unincorporated areas (unless they are part of a Montana CDP) and greater urban areas outside of city/CDP limits should also be checked as "None".

Creating Map Overlays
Creating your own city overlays: You must have WME Geometries installed along with Qgis a free geographical information system. Follow t0cableguy's guide that he has put together. Cross reference your maps for accuracy with U.S. Census Bureau maps by selecting Place on the bottom right. In the drop down menu select Montana and the appropriate city or town. Also use MDOT's City and Urban maps.

Indian Reservations
Read the Wiki standard before editing any of our Tribal Nation roads in Montana. Wiki guidelines on Indian Reservations Roads List and maps of Tribal Nations in Montana
