My Local School
Smarter school zones for connected communities
My Local School uses open data and open source software to generate alternative school intake zones. These zones are cohesive community regions that take into account the freeways, busy roads, railway lines and other barriers to travel.
Households within these zones have the certainty that their assigned school is the shortest travel distance for their neighbourhood.
My Local School uses these open datasets:
- ABS Mesh Blocks and Statistical Areas
- Local Government Areas
- Wyndham Subdivision Stage Boundaries
- Victorian Department of Education and Training
- Melbourne School Zones
The PSMA and Wyndham geographic datasets represent small neighbourhood units that, combined with routing OpenStreetMap analysis, generate cohesive community regions for fairer school intake zones.
