Process_Description:
Personnel of The Polis Center downloaded Microsoft Excel spreadsheets named "Indiana_Public_School_Directory_2010.XLS" and "Indiana_Non_Public_School_Directory_2010.XLS" containing an inventory of schools in Indiana, from a Web site of the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) at < <http://www.doe.in.gov/publications/schooldirectory.html> >. A geolocator in ESRI ArcMap was used to geocode the street addresses for each school (using an INDOT roads layer named "INDOT_Roads_2006.SHP" as a base layer) and produced a shapefile named "STATEWIDE_SCHOOLS.SHP." For addresses that could not be matched, Google Earth was used to manually plot locations.
