Title: NC1Map_Education
Abstract: Colleges and Universities: The Colleges and Universities dataset is composed of any type of Post Secondary Education such as: colleges, universities, technical schools, trade schools, business schools, satellite (branch) campuses, etc. that grant First Professional, Associate, Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral degrees. Text fields in this dataset have been set to all upper case to facilitate consistent database engine search results. All diacritics (e.g. the German umlaut or the Spanish tilde) have been replaced with their closest equivalent English character to facilitate use with database systems that may not support diacritics. The currentness of this dataset is indicated by the [CONTDATE] attribute. Based upon this attribute, the oldest record dates from 07/09/2007 and the newest record dates from 07/26/2007. Public Libraries: NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis developed the digital Public Libraries data from addresses provided by the State Library of North Carolina on 3/20/03. This file enables users to identify public library locations. This data covers the entire extent of North Carolina. Non-Public Schools: NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis developed the digital Non-Public Schools data from addresses provided by the NC Department of Administration, Division of Non-Public Education on 5/07/03. This file enables users to identify non-public school locations. This data covers the entire extent of North Carolina. Public Schools: CGIA developed this set of point locations for public schools in North Carolina as part of a project for the NC Division of Emergency Management. School data serves multiple purposes, but foremost for this project, public schools are vital facilities in terms of emergency management. Many schools serve as shelters and all are critical to hazard vulnerability planning and emergency response. CGIA used two methods to generate point locations for public schools. First, CGIA used a road network from GDT, Inc. with ArcView GIS to geocode the addresses. The initial process matched 60 percent of the schools with a point on the road network. Point locations are approximate, based on an interpolation of street numbers along street segments. Second, CGIA worked with the NC Department of Public Instruction to use the Transportation Information Management System (TIMS) to determine school locations. Many of these point locations are coincident with the center of school buildings on digital imagery or along driveways and may be more accurate than points located using the first method.
