Spatial Distribution of Federal Polytechnics in Nigeria

 On this post, I will map the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) approved Federal Polytechnics in Nigeria to have a sense of on how they are spatially distributed in the country.

There are 40 polytechnics listed on the NBTE web page above, copy the list into a spreadsheet and geocode the addresses. With this geocoded result, we can prepare the spatial distribution of the federal polytechnic schools as seen below:-

QGIS software was then use to prepare the map.

From the spatial distribution, it could be seen that boundaries between Kebbi and Niger states is a potential location a new proposed federal polytechnic. Similarly, we can recommend/proposed new federal polytechnic between Edo - Ondo states and Adamawa - Taraba states as seen in red color below.

Thank you for reading.
