Description:
Abstract:
This data-set contains public schools only for those counties that have abandoned coal mines. This data-set portrays the approximate location of Public Schools (Regular Elementary, Regular Elementary/Secondary, Occupational CTC, Special Education, Regular Secondary, Comprehensive CTC, Adult CTC, State Operated Educational Facility).

The data set was created by first obtaining the street address of each school from the Pennsylvania Departmet of Education (www.edna.ed.state.pa.us).  Addresses were then geocoded using ArcMap.  Aerial photography was used to assist in the groundtruthing of the points.
Purpose:
This data set provides information needed to represent the locations of Public Schools as point data. It was deveopled for use by the general public.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The data set's horizontal positional accuracy were calculated according to Geospatial Positioning Accuracy Standards established by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC).  
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value:RMSE Value of 75 feet; Accuracy per NSSDA value of 175 feet
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
RMSE value represets the average horizontal error of the data set.  
Accuracy per NSSDA value indicates that 95 percent of the positions in the data set will have an error that is equal to or smaller than this value.
