Universal district maps

I'd love see all of the local school districts overlaid, as polygons, on a Google map. It is hard enough just to get to view the exact boundaries of our local districts, so trying to draw conclusions about the layout of neighboring districts becomes near impossible, let alone making comparative studies across regions.

 

If district bounds were available as a standard data-set, third parties could mash up other data layers to make geography-based issues such as complex busing policies transparent.
