Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions families make when relocating-whether to a new city or across town. But seeing the relationship between homes and nearby schools is not easy. Public schools draw school attendance zones that determine the specific boundaries around the homes that they are designated to attend. As a result, the best way to visualize the home/school relationship is on school boundary maps.
School Boundary Maps
To find school boundary maps, people often turn to school district Web sites. While some districts offer maps that delineate boundaries, they can be hard to find and are usually static (i.e. not interactive). Further, for families searching for a combination of the right home and the right school, it is important to see both homes for sale and school boundaries on the same map.
Maponics school boundaries contain school district and school attendance zone boundaries across the US to support a variety of mapping displays and applications. GreatSchools, the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) and HotPads, a leading housing search engine, rely on accurate and current Maponics School Boundaries GIS data for school boundary maps.
