GIS point feature layer depicts US Post Offices in Wyandotte County, KS. Locations are symbolized by a point in approximate center of PO facility structure. In cases where post offices are leased or exist as contract stations in a larger building complex, points are at approximate location of station in complex. Included in this dataset is the Kansas City Bulk Mail Center (BMC) located at 4900 Speaker Rd Kansas City KS.
Basic attribution includes name of facility, street address, whether property is owned by US gov. or leased, and zip code.
Data is distributed in ESRI shapefile format, Kansas State Plane coordinates, NAD83, units US feet.
Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Facility names, street addresses, zip, phone numbers, and own/leased property designations were researched and checked by GeoSpatial Services, and believed to be very accurate.
One point was digitzed for each PO location-- no duplication allowed. In cases where PO was a leased station in a mixed-use, larger building complex (e.g. a store), a point was digitized in approx. location within building complex. Digitizing methodology for stand-alone postal facilities was to place a point in approx. geometric center of structure.
All operating Post Offices in Wyandotte Co. KS are represented in this dataset.
Location point placement was referenced by street address and positive identification of postal facility using digital air orthophotography. Accuracy is rated at high confidence level.
Aerial orthophotography provided snapshot of ground conditions to compare and review features, and as a base for feature extraction (digitization), if required
List of Wyandotte County Post Offices was compiled from AT&T white pages phone book dated 6/2008. List was verified for completeness with Post Office sources.
After PO site list was prepared from sources identified in Source Information section, feature capture process was point digitization in approx. building geometric center, using ortho aerials as ground reference. In cases where Post Office was a station in a larger building complex (e.g. retail store) point was placed in presumed location of station within building. Layer attribution was also added, such as PO name, address, zip, etc. Work done in ESRI ArcMap, ver. 9.2, Geodatabase format.
