K-12 School Location Data Now Available
The North Dakota K-12 school location data is now available from the GIS Hub.
Similar to school districts, this dataset has become available through a partnership of the GIS Technical Committee (GISTC), the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), and Applied Data Consultants (ADC). The GISTC identified this as a dataset that needed to be on the GIS Hub and provided the funding. DPI supplied the source data and associated knowledge. ADC was selected from the Technical and Data Services category of the Information Technology Professional Services Contract Pool. ADC compiled various datasets from DPI and then using multiple methods improved the accuracy of the school locations.
This school location data is available for download and as web services. More information can be found in the data description. Links to the download and web services are found in in the Distribution Information section of the data description.
