Source Data Note

A list of Maine colleges and universities was found at Maine.gov, and school location data was acquired by dropping a pin in the center of campus on Google Maps and recording the given latitude and longitude. School enrollment data was provided by the National Center for Education Statistics. Population information, highway data, county boundaries, and hillshade data were compiled from the Maine Office of GIS.
