The study seeks to follow the optimal method for distributing primary schools in the City of Hail, Saudi Arabia, to improve the educational level in the city. The educational level depends on the availability of educational services and optimal spatial locating, which is deemed a key indicator to measure spatial development in any region. The study achieves this purpose by providing a factual cadastral vision and correct predictions of future service development and trying to induct the elements of defect of the geographic spatial distribution using modern, updated, accurate methods. Geographic information systems are very important as they present a new strategic dimension for spatial databases by providing information about the best solutions for handling and analyzing spatial data in accordance with the standards of the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This is made possible by locating the schools inside the residential districts, obtaining digital maps of the current situation.
