Process step:
Process description:
This dataset originated from the list of DBA business licenses maintained by the City of Tallahassee, and then geocoded into ESRI shapefile form.

Additional data were added from lists of parks, graveyards, mile markers, and other non-addressed locations maintained in the previous Tallahassee Police Department Computer Aided Dispatch system.

Erroneous, unclear, or duplicate locations were removed via a series of interactive editing sessions, over a period of three months.

Extensive feedback from Communications personnel about needed corrections has yielded the dataset in its current form.

The dataset is updated continually, in an attempt to keep vital information about openings and closings of businesses current.
