Overview Description
Entity and Attribute Overview The specific attributes for school administrative units were provided by the Maine Department of Education.


Entity and Attribute Detail Citation The ArcView shapefile and ArcGIS geodatabase formats, commonly used for Maine GIS data, carry default identifiers and attributes that are software generated and/or important for internal recordkeeping. These are listed here to avoid repetition for every layer, and may not be repeated in the attribute descriptions and definitions of each layer. Common software generated identifiers and attributes in Maine GIS data include: FID (feature identifier), Shape (feature geometry), OBJECTID and SHAPE_lengt. In addition, most GIS formats will carry fields for PERIMETER, AREA and/or LENGTH according to feature geometry. These fields are typically available by default, with the units based on coordinate system or projection units of GIS data. Most GIS software packages also provide a means to calculate these values. It is important to test any columns containing PERIMETER, AREA or LENGTH values before using them for analysis purposes. These important values can be carried from format to format and become out-dated. Verify that the values are correct. Also, in your GIS software, please view the properties of data layers for the map units used to calculate these fields, and for the units set for display purposes.

Data Quality 

Attribute Accuracy
Attribute Accuracy Report
                            Attribute coding in this layer was verified at MEGIS by visual check of polygons and attributes against a Maine Department of Education list of municipalites that are members of Alternative Organizational Structures.
                          
Logical Consistency Report
                        Data set meets "Data Standards for Maine Geographic Information Systems", 2002

Process Step
Process Description
                                Maine Department of Education provided MEGIS with an Excel spreadsheet containing Maine school adminstrative units current as of December 2011. Excel data was imported into Access to create tables for each individual school administrative unit.  These tables were then joined to Metwp24 to extract the corresponding polygon data for each unit.  The results of the joins and queries were used to create polygon shapefiles of each unit.
