Abstract The Montana Schools Database is comprised of public and private schools within the state of Montana. This includes colleges and universities.The overall source for the school information came from the Directory of Montana Schools 2003-2004, published by the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI). FEMA HAZUS data was used for school attributes. The U.S. Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) was used for positional data. The FEMA data source is derived from the National Center for Education Statistics with address range geocoding applied to derive positions. Other miscellaneous sources included the internet: whitepages.com, yellowpages.com, privatebug.org, myaasite.com/programs/schools/county, and greatschools.net/modperl/bycity/mt.The layer was modified in 2015 to change the values in the Name and Address fields from all upper case to upper and lower case. Several time-sensitive fields with contact information for the school administrator were removed.
