ConnectMN new maps unveiled

Last week, Connect Minnesota unveiled an updated version of the Minnesota Broadband maps

The mapping tool, called My ConnectView™, is a valuable tool for consumers, policy makers, Internet providers, and planning teams working to increase broadband access, adoption, and use in communities across the state and nation. …

 My ConnectView, developed by Connected Nation, Connect Minnesota’s parent organization, replaces the previous mapping tool and is faster and easier to use; features more interactive data layers and additional tools to explore data; and allows users to e-mail, print, and send feedback on custom maps.

From what I’ve seen it is faster to use and seem smoother. I still wish I could get info by county – but I wasn’t able to find a way to do it on the map. There will be a webinar demonstration of the new tool on Wednesday – unfortunately I’ll be at the Minnesota High Tech Association conference…

One thought on “ConnectMN new maps unveiled

  1. I found the maps quite easy to use. And the ability to zoom into an area is quite good.

    I hope that the state broadband task force prints some nice size posters of these areas to keep this lack of connectivity fresh in their minds. Maybe some of those local champions need to send some their area map to the task force to make sure that their voices are heard.
