As communities that utilize our GIS services continue to thrive, aiding and encouraging economic development is a cornerstone of continued success. With the help of GIS capabilities, communities can present themselves as enticing opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers – with the data to back it up!
GIS allows for demographic data that provides characteristics of your population, breaking down by variables like age, gender, income, education, and more. This type of information enables a municipality’s economic development staff to better promote growth by showing prospects a real and quantified description of the types of customers that are nearby.
Because GIS mapping allows for layers with a wealth of information, data sets that are specific to a nuanced prospect can be accessed with a simple click. How residents spend their time and money can further delve into why your community is a right fit for new economic development.
With this information available to developers and entrepreneurs, bringing in new business, new jobs, and added culture to targeted areas of your community can be an intuitive and painless process.
