Economic development planning professionals promote growth and a better quality of life for residents. To achieve those goals, they must understand the complex workflows and drivers behind housing, tourism, business and job needs, development, and planning. The strategic plan and policies that support economic growth, job creation, and place branding require location analysis with geographic information system (GIS) technology. GIS provides insight, highlights opportunities, identifies deficiencies, and fosters collaboration to ensure that your organization makes smarter and more sustainable economic decisions.
