Summary: A School District Catchment Boundary is a geographic area created for the purposes of educational administration.
Description: SD catchment boundaries are determined by School District 8, Kootenay Lake Policy No. 461. Boundaries are determined based upon a number of factors including geography and demographics. Boundaries were created using 1:20,000 TRIM data from DataBC WMS base layers and Fire Zone, Fire Department and Addressing data provided by the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK).
School District boundary data acquired from BC Stats.
School Location, Municipality, First Nations and Regional District data acquired from DataBC.
Built on a Leaflet with all layers served using GeoJSON (markers) and TopoJSON (polygons). GeoJSON and TopoJSON validated using JSONLint.
All school catchment layers digitized in QGIS and topology run through GRASS where geometry errors were detected.
