Student Enrollment Analysis

Student enrollment analysis

Visualize your students on a map and use this insight to monitor population shifts and enrollment trends.  Plan for future growth or declines and identify special program students by implementing pin color-coding.

Student Performance Analysis

Stakeholder communication

Use a custom chart builder to create analytics based on your student data.  Run these statistics on any of our scenarios to gain more insight into the effects of those changes.  Export these visuals for use in meetings or in presentations.

"We used 5Maps™ to develop a visual of each school's boundaries, which never existed in the past. We were using a cumbersome spreadsheet/binder system before. 5Maps is easy to use and constantly updated through Google Maps."

Maureen A.Jones, Assistant Superintendent for Finance & Operations/CSBO, CCSD 89, Illinois
