Improve your crop of Shabbos- understanding how far you can walk is part of Yahadus.
We at TechumShabbos.com are embarking on another dimension to mapping the Techum. We believe there is enough technology to use the USGS maps, google street view and city municipal maps for 'almost automated Techum calculations.' Of course, human review will be necessary by a qualified trained person. Our vision is to allow anyone to input an address and a map will be generated. The technology allows specific programming according the Techum rules to calculate. We are exploring some of these programs. If you have good comprehension skills & are comfortable using a computer, then this could be a great project for you. If you would like to participate please contact us.
Boundary addresses are not exact, but recognizable identifiable locations.
In the interim visit this link for a recent map of 3 colonies in Monticello. https://arcg.is/1yeW1r
