To create and display public school information (2016) in a point feature class in the Santa Clara County Region . Data derived from a database of public schools distributed by the California Department of Education & supplemented by data derived from other public sources.
Major roads, which were subjectively determined, were selected and dissolved based upon name (including street prefix) and attributed with road number and road class. Multiple lane roads (i.e. multiple centerlines representing the travel direction or volume of a road) were dissolved to one line for generalization and labeling purposes. Primary criteria for inclusion; all freeways, highways, expressways, county routes, primary reference is: http://www.cahighways.org/. Additionally, major arterials and arterials were included, primary reference is local knowledge and criteria is to emphasize the mesh nature of roads within the county.
Census tract geometry within Santa Clara County from the 2010 Census Tiger shapefiles.Feature class derived from Tiger line shapefile of 2010 census tracts for Santa Clara County and geographic identifier table, G001. Some attribute names may be when exporting as shapefile due to 10 character limitation of shapefile attribute names.
The POI Dataset is a digital representation of the physical, geographic and commercial features across all of Santa Clara County. This dataset aims to provide accurate location information in the map. Sources: California Department Of Education (2016), Santa Clara County Combined data (2016).
The National Land Cover Database 2001 land cover layer for mapping zone 03 was produced through a cooperative project conducted by the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium. The MRLC Consortium is a partnership of federal agencies (www.mrlc.gov), consisting of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), the National Park Service (NPS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). One of the primary goals of the project is to generate a current, consistent, seamless, and accurate National Land cover Database (NLCD) circa 2001 for the United States at medium spatial resolution. This landcover map and all documents pertaining to it are considered "provisional" until a formal accuracy assessment can be conducted. For a detailed definition and discussion on MRLC and the NLCD 2001 products, refer to Homer et al. (2004) and http://www.mrlc.gov/mrlc2k.asp. The NLCD 2001 is created by partitioning the U.S. into mapping zones. A total of 66 mapping zones were delineated within the conterminous U.S. based on ecoregion and geographical characteristics, edge matching features and the size requirement of Landsat mosaics. Mapping zone 03 encompasses whole or portions of several states, including the states of California. Questions about the NLCD mapping zone 03 can be directed to the NLCD 2001 land cover mapping team at the USGS/EROS, Sioux Falls, SD (605) 594-6151 or email@example.com.
