Abstract:
District of Columbia Public Libraries. This dataset contains contains points representing locations of public libraries, created as part of the DC Geographic Information System (DC GIS) for the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) and participating D.C. government agencies. Library locations were identified from public records and heads-up digitized from the snapbase.
All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Process_Description:
Public libraries were identified from lists published by the D.C. Public Library website and facilities management. A point shapefile was created by geocoding the addresses. These points were compared to the 1995 orthophotographs, the building footprint layer, and the D.C. Real Property Tax owner points for address and ownership information. The square suffix lot attribute was retained as the link to the data from the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue. A link to the appropriate website was provided for reference. The geocoded points were then moved to the center of the corresponding buildings and core attributes were added. Attribute data was provided by public library records.
All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Process_Description:
The District of Columbia Public Library closed four branches for demolition and reconstruction on December 30, 2004. The four branches, Anacostia, Benning, Tenley-Friendship and Watha T. Daniel/Shaw, are closed and under construction until mid-2006. Given this, OCTO staff updated the existing library layer using the information contained on the DC Public Library site and closure press release. Since these libraries were demolished in the spring of 2005 and will not re-open until mid-2006, staff removed them from the layer.

Changes made to the DC Library dataset.
There were 4 reopenings of Libraries at interim facilities:
a. Anacostia Interim b. Benning Rd Interim c. Tenleytown Interim d. Watha T. Daniel/Shaw
The points were also geocoded to the mar so the locations are now in the visual center of buildings in most cases.
