In 2010, Maponics became the first to offer school attendance zone coverage through our School Boundaries dataset.


Why Do Accurate School Boundaries Matter?

Schools are a core part of our communities and our lives, and decisions relating to their location are critical for consumers.

  • School Performance. Parents want to avoid purchasing a home that is serviced by a lower-performing public school. Filtering their property search by school attendance zone can deliver performance information at the beginning of the home buying process.
  • Property Values. Homes that are associated with higher-performing schools hold their value more successfully than homes serviced by lower-performing schools. Of course, this is important for families with kids. But even many singles and couples, or empty nesters, seek a home with a better school because it can be a smarter investment.

Here are 8 reasons Maponics has been the industry leader in school data for over three years.
