Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!


I'm wondering if there have been people who volunteered their time adding to the map and also had that time count towards the GISP contribution section. How would I go about getting recognition for that?

I am not aware of other volunteers who have counted their TNMCorps contributions towards a GISP certification, but that's not to say it can't be done. I would recommend first contacting the GIS Certification Institute to make sure our project would count as a GIS Volunteer Effort (category VII).

Since the work for this project is done remotely, you will be responsible for tracking your own hours. Once you think you've completed your required number of hours, you will need to notify us so we can verify your time and complete a certification letter. Make sure to notify us of your hours completion at least five business days prior to when you will need to turn in your certification.

To verify the amount of time you've spent editing, we look at the number of points you've edited. We estimate that it takes an average of 12 minutes to edit a single point, so if you've edited 100 unique points, we can verify that you've committed roughly 20 hours to our project. Keep in mind that we will be reviewing your contributions. If we decide that they aren't being properly researched and edited, we reserve the right to withhold the certification letter until the quality of work improves.
