  • Effective practices for using GIS Software.
  • Use web-based tools to analyze data.


Many times, economic development decisions are made exclusively by EDOs, which puts planners in a reactive mode. This hands-on workshop utilizes web-based tools to analyze demographic, socio-economic, behavioral, and business data to better understand the overall characteristics and needs of the community and make better policy decisions in regard to developing and expanding existing business and efforts to recruit new businesses. Laptops and other equipment required for session will be provided.
