Mapping Helpers

Postby DallasGrant » Sun Feb 15, 2015 4:24 pm

I am starting this topic to form a good list of map helpers everyone uses in editing. I want to use this list to help make a good user guide to help all editors find good information to properly name roads, number the houses, and verify functional class.

Please list any methods that you use for your editing and the links to these tools.

The first obvious one is for Functional class. Getting this out of the way first so it doesn't need to be repeated.

http://gisservices.dot.state.mn.us/Geoc ... t_basemap#

1) When loads, first go to Jump to Extent at the bottom left corner of the map itself and choose the county you are working on
2)Click on the words Transportation then Road Details on the menu on the left-hand side under Layer list
3) Then follow the standards found here https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/U ... ence_chart
