From a recent Georgia Tech Research Institute e-blast:

GIS4EconomicDevelopment 8-Hr Workshop, May 24, 2012

Offered by the Georgia Tech Research Institute | GIS@GTRI Program

Economic development agencies and professionals use data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to retain, grow, and attract businesses and to market their community, regions and states. Is your Economic Development story up to date?

With the advent of Google maps, countless analytical tools including GIS, and access to BIG data through the Internet, the robust detail you can use to tell an economic development story has increased exponentially.

The GIS4EconomicDevelopment hands-on course will:

  • Introduce you to the concept of thinking geospatially
  • Take you on a dive into resources and tools available to enable disparate data to be put together and used most effectively
  • Offer hands on experience, practice the art of telling a new economic development story with geotechnologies with special emphasis on site suitability and demographic analysis
