At the core of any effective sustainable economic strategy is policy development that supports a community’s needs and growth. Successful economic policies are centered around a detailed understanding of location. This includes understanding the socioeconomic characteristics and needs of neighborhoods throughout the community, as well as consumer and workforce abilities and needs. GIS provides spatial context to this data for leaders who are developing sustainable, equitable, and effective policies for short- and long-term economic development.
