Update the U.S. National Grid Google Mashup and build additional versions in Bing and OpenStreetMap as funds allow.
Background: The integration of the U.S. National Grid (USNG) coordinates in online web mapping systems has only been partially implemented on a variety of web mapping pages. When not in possession of USNG standardized printed map products, one of the most difficult things to do is to take a USNG coordinate and quickly produce a basic, readable map, or visa versa: take a basic map or address and obtain a USNG coordinate. To relieve this difficulty, Larry Moore developed a web map based on the Google Maps API that incorporated USNG coordinates (http://dhost.info/usngweb/).
How Funds Donated Here Will Be Used: The intent of this Shared Funding Project is to upgrade Larry Moore’s orginal work to the latest version of the Google Maps API and in doing so allow for some basic enhancements that will add usability. As funds allow, similar capabilities in Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap will be implemented.
