Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) and participating D.C. government agencies. School locations were identified from public records and heads-up digitized from the 2008 orthophotographs.

All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Charter schools were identified from lists published by the D.C. Public Charter School website and the D.C. Government. A point shapefile was created by geocoding the addresses. These points were compared to the 1995 orthophotographs, the building footprint layer, and the D.C. Real Property Tax owner points for address and ownership information. The square suffix lot attribute was retained as the link to the data from the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue. A link to the appropriate website was provided for reference. The geocoded points were then moved to the center of the corresponding buildings and core attributes were added.

All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.
