What It Is

Join a cooperative effort to build a digital gazetteer of North Carolina places. Our goal is to help the people of North Carolina communicate about the places they live in, visit, and study. We will to do this by designing, building, and maintaining place-based digital infrastructure for the UNC System and other public institutions of North Carolina. You’ll develop experience in planning and implementing a state-of-the-art system for collecting, cleaning, enriching, and publishing data. If we’re successful, the public infrastructure we create will enhance our ability to find, understand, share and remember the places we care about.

Is That All?

Nope! You should probably check out the guidelines.
