WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 7, 2010 — Maponics ( www.maponics.com), a leading provider of location-based data, announced today that the Realtors Property Resource TM (RPR), a new tool set from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), will include data from the Maponics School Boundaries TM product. RPR is an online real estate library for NAR’S REALTOR® members with valuable datasets such as assessor and recorder data, active and off-market listing data, mortgages, foreclosures and pre-foreclosures, demographics, schools and geographic information.
Maponics School Boundaries TM is the first commercial GIS data product to include explicit attendance zone boundaries, the areas around public schools that define the households that attend them.

RPR will integrate and leverage Maponics school data to provide members with:
- a comprehensive and current source for private and public school information
- an easy way to view the relationship between properties and public schools in map displays
- the ability to view reports and analytics by areas such as individual SAZs and school districts
