Database Repurposer

Use your computer and map-reading skills to assist MNopedia and Enterprise Technology staff with the repurposing of the "Minnesota Place Names" database to make the information available to online users. You will ensure accuracy and verify the geocoding of Place Names entries while you gain a broader knowledge of Minnesota history and geography.

A flexible schedule is available. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 5 hours per week on an ongoing basis. Completing the work of entering 6,400 entries to the database in early 2017 is our goal.
