Process_Description:
Data obtained from NJBPU & AEG on 20160826 in spreadsheet fromat. Public locations were identified and categorized as either "Government Facility", "School Public K-12", "College/University", or "Other School Facility". Addresses were geocoded and then visually checked for accuracy in order to determine coordinate values to map. Company Names and other values were normalized for quality and consistency.
