Mapping tools
Interesting that there are two VA tools here, given their current pressures. Readers, have you used a data-rich map from an agency that you found helpful? Tell us what we missed and share with your peers.

Re: Mapping tools
There's some irony in the fact that the VA is tracking live weather events while patient appointments are far from real-time.

Galveston, TX, or NY, NY?
The map of Galveston, Texas, looks suspiciously like New York City. Could there be a mistake in the caption of the map?

Re: Galveston, TX, or NY, NY?
You are correct. It is New York, not Texas. We have fixed the caption. Thanks for pointing it out.
