School Districts Boundaries in California

Posted by rayKiddy on 3 December 2013 in English (English)

Starting on an interesting effort. It should be able to map out CA’s school districts on the map. I think that all the pieces are somewhere, nearby.

There are 1003 school in this state. There is TIGER data for the boundaries of all of them. If I can find an easy way to access the shp files, that would be nice, but I am on a Mac and I do not buy Arc stuff. But the info is there. And there may even be a way to locate the lines in the current map that come from TIGER but I do not see it yet. Would something like ‘:tiger:geoid:0638460’ work as a search term? No, it does not. We’ll see.

Just stumbling around at this point. I have a mess of data sitting here. And a map with a lot of connected things. It seems as though they should be connectable. We will see.

cheers - ray

Did you try JOSM + OpenData plugin ? The OpenData plugin can read ESRI shapefiles. See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugins/OpenData

You can load shapefiles into Potlatch 2.
