Description

This layer represents the OIT Community Anchor Institutions (CAI) data set. ''Community Anchor Institutions'' consist of schools, libraries, medical and healthcare providers, public safety entities, community colleges and other institutions of higher education, and other community support organizations and entities. These locations may not offer broadband availability to the public (although most libraries and many schools, and community centers do) but offer an opportunity for policy makers to understand where community anchor institutions which have broadband access are located; this can help in identifying challenges and opportunities to reaching connectivity goals. Although it is constantly being improved upon, ultimately we aim for this data set to evolve into a reliable resource for emergency response services.
Web Map Services - Please note that the endpoint below also offers links for JSON, SOAP, WMS, and WFS. Additionally, the "Google Earth" link allows the user to download a KMZ file representative of the CAI data set.
