Using GIS to Market Your Economic Development Assets: North Carolina Case Studies
As powerful tools for decision support and asset management, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a vital part of successful economic development. Modern GIS tools enable graphical visualization of key location factors -- cluster assets, for instance, workforce commuting patterns, transportation systems, utility infrastructure or property boundaries -- in ways that facilitate strategic planning, marketing, recruitment and other economic development efforts.
Join us as we explore the latest GIS technologies and how they are being deployed in North Carolina, with case studies from Transylvania County, the NC Southeast/NC Biotech Industrial Biotech GIS Map, the NC Railroad Company and others. How can you leverage GIS tools in achieving your economic development objectives?
