Lineage 

Lineage statement
ND Department of Public Instruction produced a spreadsheet containing a comprehensive list of all schools in the State. The spreadsheet contained physical address attributes that were geocoded to produce a point feature class used for reference during the data creation. The spreadsheet also contained latitude and longitude coordinates for some schools although the accuracy of these attributes was not considered to be reliable. These latitude and longitude coordinates were used to create another feature class used as a reference during data creation. Then for each geocoded and/or lat/long point, several data sources were examined to find evidence to verify the school location. Data sources included aerial photography (primarily 1010 NAIP), Google Maps, Bing, and the school websites. With each of these sources, technicians looked for evidence such as school busses, playgrounds, sports fields, and other evidence indicating the presence of a school. One of the best sources was Google Street View which, in many cases, allowed the technician to clearly read signs outside of the school building that displayed the school name. Each school point was attributed with a confidence level of high, medium, or low based upon the amount of evidence that was discovered.
