A common goal in school districts is to transport students safely and efficiently while maintaining quality service. The Polyplot© Mapping System provides a unique and powerful tool designed for school districts to analyze student information interactively and graphically.
Polyplot© provides a broad range of formats for displaying school district information. The transportation office can develop and maintain complete, detailed route schedule information. For school district administrative planning, Polyplot© can be used in building/classroom utilization studies, boundary analysis, voting precinct information or any other map-oriented study.
Implemented in over 110 districts throughout Michigan..
