AUTHORS: Priya Sankalia, Project Manager, AppGeo

ABSTRACT: Many New England communities are facing increasing populations and school overcrowding. The challenge for school districts is equitable distribution of students and resources. By loading student distribution and municipal data into analysis tools such as CARTO and ArcGIS, various redistricting scenarios can be created and shared with stakeholders including families, school committee members and school administrators. Visualization and analysis tools help clarify the proposed solutions, explore alternatives and reach consensus more quickly. This presentation will share the technological approach and how to leverage geospatial technology to advance contentious discussions.
