Use Cases

Real Estate Search and Display
Top realtors know when buying a home, you should think like a future seller. Understanding a home’s or business’ proximity to a school is important even if you don’t have school-age children and never plan to. When young families buy their first or second home, they will pay close attention to school location. Maponics School Ground Boundaries adds an additional layer of usefulness when reviewing buying criteria and making purchasing decisions.

Social/Anonymous Messaging Applications
Anonymous social messaging applications are growing in popularity allowing people to hide their identity, whether for personal or professional reasons. The potential benefits of using social networks and messaging apps like this are many and varied. So too, are the possible downsides. Through Maponics School Ground Boundaries, geofences can be created for exclusion or inclusion to control access to applications within school grounds.

When a crisis occurs at a school, emergency responders may need immediate access. Maponics School Ground Boundaries can be used to process information and manage logistics during emergencies. This dataset offers key insight when developing knowledge and support mechanisms for early warning, threat mitigation and response planning. Use of these boundaries also supports the dissemination of information to responders during an emergency event.
