Title: Common Points of Interest for King County
Feature Count: 5573
Feature Type: Point
Abstract: Authoritative Points-of-Interest layer for King County. Contains over 45 different domain classes showing locations and names for a range of different features. Some classes of features are extensively documented (such as school sites and hospitals) while other classes represent a selected set of all the features of that type (such as hotels and shopping centers). Each feature is represented by a single point describing the centroid of the feature. Multiple points for a single XY coordinate may exist if more than one domain is represented. In other words, a single feature may represent a hospital, but that same point may be represented by another feature (i.e., record) described as a Public Health Clinic. Signficant reviews/updates across a specific domain are described in the Lineage of COMMON_INTEREST_POINT and any domain-specific datasets; other corrections and adhoc updates are not detailed in the Lineage.
Purpose: Location and description of various points of common interest. Includes abbreviation of name for labeling purposes, and cross-reference to King County address database, ADDRESS_POINT.
