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.

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.
