  2. 2. School Boundary GeodatabaseHistory Continuation of the School Attendance Boundary Information System (SABINS)  Headed by Prof. Salvatore Saporito, The College of William & Mary  David Van Riper, Minnesota Population Center  www.sabinsdata.org First release in the SDDS Map Viewer in May 2012  2009-2010 school boundaries for the top 350 districts Census Bureau is summarizing the data by school boundary

  4. 4. School Boundary Technologies  Using ArcSDE 10.1sp1  Using ArcGIS Server 10.1 EC2  Python (Arcpy)
  5. 5. Data Model
  6. 6. Data Processing Workflow  Collectboundaries  Dissolve boundaries into a 1 to 1 format  Associate boundaries with NCESSCH ID  Perform QA/QC  Sync data to the Cloud
  7. 7. School Boundary QA/QCProcedures  Confirm that all regular schools have a boundary  Confirmthat all attributes are correct and correspond to the NCESSCH school ID  Confirmthat every geographical area is served by every grade
  8. 8. Contact and Data TrackingApplication  Tracksall contact between the district and the Census collection team  Stores original data type  Records the date completed and user name for each processing step  Generates a variety of reports
