Malaysia Schools Coordinates

#1 Post by supremeoverlord0 » Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:47 pm

Hi, I attach a Google Maps coordinates for mostly schools (pri, sec and preschool) avalaible in Malaysia. Please bear in mind that this is not my contribution alone but all the guru data in Malaysia that provide the coordinate in Education Management Information System (EMIS). Cheers.

Good effort, supremeoverlord. Will compare with our School POIs and fill in the gap. Do you have the date of this update? It would be helpful to know the date or version number so if we get the same list in the future we know whether its a newer list or not. Thanks.

Probably a KML export from http://tables.googlelabs.com/DataSource?dsrcid=228406, not a good export as some school were renamed when there's already another school with the same name.

Thanks Nyem. Many of the school coordinates in supremeoverlord0's list appears to be off by 200 to 400 metres. I only checked for Kuantan.

Coordinates from MOE's EMIS are not entirely accurate

For a rural school. a coordinate 200m out is still better than no coordinates. I think we shud include.

supremeoverlord0, any chance of tracks to the schools as well? Would be good to get to the schools

The only way to get good accuracy on the coordinates is to have someone stand in a school compound with a gpsr unit. This is impossible to do at all locations. Accuracy have not been given much thought when the data collection exercise is carried out. If coordinates are read off digital maps, errors would definitely be high.

Most likely datum issue. GPSr set as Timbalai/Kertau? Or coordinate pick as ddd mm.mmm being keyed in as ddd mm ss.s format

Erm, sorry I don't think there are any version number. It is update on regular basis by the teacher or management from the particular school. Yes, some may be off by few meters but for new teacher or somebody who want to know the location of the school, this might help. Especially the rural area. As for track, I saw none included so very sorry in that part. [-o<

I also want to say :rokz: and :good:
