The high demand for digital GIS data inspired the creation of the School Attendance Boundary Information System (SABINS), which is a National Spatial Data Infrastructure project supported with a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation. Many school districts use GIS to create maps of their school attendance boundaries. SABINS requests the electronic GIS files and enters them into a uniform database.
