“Home buyers and renters search by more than just number of bedrooms and price, they search by location and all that comes with location. At HotPads we try to give shoppers as much accurate local information as possible so they can make more informed decisions. The industry-leading school boundaries provided by Maponics are key to giving our users one of the most important local data points – where their children will attend school."

School district data has been widely available for years; but school districts can have hundreds of school attendance zones, with each zone tied to different schools. Typically, the public school a child will attend is not determined by the school district, but by the school attendance zone. In 2010, Maponics made school attendance zone data available with their School Boundaries dataset. Maponics School Boundaries is the first commercial GIS dataset to include school attendance zone boundaries in addition to school districts and school points.

By using Maponics School Boundaries, customers such as HotPads, Zillow, Trulia and give buyers and renters the opportunity to build their search around the school - reflecting the importance they place on their children's education.
