Point feature GIS layer of state (Kansas) and US government facilities in Wyandotte County, KS. Features in this dataset represent locations of selected federal or state sites of interest in County. Included are federal buildings, federal offices, KDOT offices and materials depots, a National Guard Armory, and a Reserve US Army base, among others.
Companion datasets for installation grounds and building outlines (both polygon feature layers) are available to complement this point layer. Contact GSS for more information.
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.

Basic attributes including name and address can be considered as highly accurate
One point feature per facility site, as a rule placed in center of main building/complex outline.
Believed to be fairly comprehensive inventory of federal and state facilities/sites of interest in Wyandotte County but no extensive research was carried out to identify all possible sites for inclusion in this dataset. Users should consider this dataset a good representative snapshot of non-local public facilities in the County.
No quantifiable accuracy rating is given on this dataset. However, every point feature is believed to be centered properly on its designated facility/site main building/complex, as checked against aerial imagery of high resolution. No field data collection/verification was performed in creation of this dataset.
Aerial orthophotography provided snapshot of ground conditions to compare and review features prior to digitization
Digital planimetric/topographic drawing files (CAD format) furnished topographic and planimetric detail as a snapshot of ground conditions to compare and review features, and as a base for feature digitization (point capture), with aerial imagery used as an adjunct
Various internet directories and listings were consulted to verify installation names and addresses
Initial desktop research yielded prospective list of government facilities candidates. Site locations were verified and attribution such as address and phone contact numbers were collected. In GIS software, location points were obtained through heads-up digitizing using digital planimetric footprints as reference basis and aerial imagery as an comparative overlay and verification source. Attribution was added, including x,y coordinate values of points as calculated geometry in the software.
