Got a favorite pothole?


The GIS Club has started its work on the Milwaukee Pothole Mapping project. Download the free MapplerK (not Mappler-K) app from the Apple app store or from the Google Play store then get the log-in details at the project's web site.

See a pothole and map it with Mappler. It's easy and fun.
