The Mokpo School Map

The Mokpo Office of Education website has a list of schools, complete with listings of the elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools in Mokpo, and more importantly a map dotting their locations. Of course if you haven't master Hangul, these list may be more scary than useful. So what can we do?

The data that we need is all there, and we just need to convert it into a useful format. For example, if we translate the elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools lists via Google's nifty translation button, we get a better understanding of what exactly is being displayed. But since we have more tools at our disposal, we can go further; if we romanize the data via, translate some of the common words, and map the street addresseses, we get ourselves a quick reference table, listing locations of each school in Mokpo, complete with clickable map link.

Some notes on the directory:
  • There are 53 dots on the map with 63 schools listed.
  • Not all school street address resolved in a map link.
  • There is some disagreement with the Romanization output of
  • Some schools (especialy the Branch schools) are located outside of mainland Mokpo.
  • Just from experience, I suspect that not all data (i.e. names of schools or streets) is up to date.
