Data Set Description: This layer contains the high school district boundaries for high schools in the City of Oakland.

Non-standard Attributes in table:

  • U_ID--Provides user with a unique identifier number for each polygon in the layer

Data Source History: Gil Brennum of Oakland Unified School District delivered paper maps of the school district boundaries. Pat Combs of OCIS digitized these boundaries using the center of pavement GIS layer as a base and the paper maps as a reference.

Quality Check: Jonathan Lowe, Local Knowledge Consulting, quality checked the layer by closing gaps between boundary lines intended to connect but not snapped during arcview digitization work by OUSD. Jonathan then built the coverage for polygon topology.

Security restrictions: No security restrictions.

Update Frequency: No scheduled updates by OCIS. OUSD will update for 1997.

Update process: OUSD will notify OCIS GIS staff when updates to the school layers are required and will supply OCIS with shapefiles for conversion to ArcInfo coverages.
