Process step

  • Data from Early Childhood Community Development Centre MS Excel files were compiled into one database. The child care centre addresses were geocoded against the address database to locate the schools. The address database, digital orthoimagery and input from Community Services staff were used to locate remaining centres.

Process step

  • The dataset was updated by GIS Services through the addition of a field "Vacancy". The internet was used to generate an URL for the link to the child care centre vacancy data webpage in the Early Childhood Community Development Centre website.

Process step

  • The dataset is no longer being used in conjunction with the ECCDC website, so several columns of data were eliminated (e.g. Caregiver ID, ECCDC URL etc.)
