Educational Data Systems has been collaborating with school districts to bring life to student data using geographic information systems (GIS) for decades. In that time, we’ve uncovered uses of GIS data that matter most to students, parents, and educators. Using GIS technology, schools are able to visualize data to see how adjusting boundary lines and moving students from one school to another alters enrollments, grade-level allocation, ethnic distributions, transfer assignments, and student travel averages within your district. Some of those uses include:
- Geocoding students
- Statistical reports
- Demographic studies
GIS & Boundary Planning
Our boundary planning services are powered by a customized geodatabase of students, schools, and applicable geographic information – including custom GIS software tools that manage and streamline the planning process. We have the ability to create countless boundary scenarios providing your district with a variety of options before making a final decision.
Our in-house GIS experts have experience collaborating with school districts to tell the story of their students using data visualization. If you’d like more information about our GIS Services, connect with us.
