You may notice some of the markers are not the correct location. These errors are in the original published historical marker database, not the app itself.
We have included a feature that allows users to correct the location of markers. Tap a button to confirm you are standing in front of the marker you are viewing and upload the correct location. In time, with your help we can create the most accurate Texas Historical Marker database to date!
If you visit a marker that appears to not be in the app, do a search for it. It is more than likely just a location error from the public database. Then you will be able to submit a correct location to us to fix it. Happy travels!
