Neighborhood Boundaries & Mapping

Give user engagement a boost with polygon search that shows users the true character of a neighborhood.

Neighborhood Boundaries is a tool that gathers all types of data from local experts to find out what a neighborhood is – its character and invisible “boundaries.” It helps you connect your users with the places that fit them best.

Neighborhood polygons* can be used to draw the shapes of distinct neighborhoods on a map and allow search within those specific regions. Plot local listings, recent home sales, nearby schools and businesses within these neighborhoods and watch your user engagement soar.

Our Neighborhood Boundaries come with a Developer’s Toolkit to give you all the resources to import these files and to provide an outstanding interface for your customers.

Zip code boundaries also available.
