Introduction to GIS Planning
Complex data can be overwhelming to website visitors, so GIS Planning data tools make information inherently visual to improve engagement, recall, and resonance. Information is presented in attractive customised heat maps with layers, infographics, charts, and graphs that are easy to share on social media or export for use in proposals, reports, email, slide decks, or trade show collateral.
GIS Planning has over 20 years of experience with economic development data tools online. Our GIS Planning software was the very first to take investment promotion and corporate site selection online. We have built a loyal customer base representing over 17,000 cities in 44 US states, as well as international expansion across Canada and into the UK, Switzerland, France, Spain, Sweden and Germany.
GIS Planning offers clients powerful website analytics to help you understand what's important for investors, so you can promote your location more effectively. The multi-tiered analytics allow you to see which companies are looking at your online web tools, what search criteria they are using, and which properties and communities they are researching. This intel helps you increase leads and improve conversion rates.
“Sometimes when you see a particularly good use of technology, you wonder how things were done before the technology was available. GIS Planning's online mapping coupled with site selection and demographics is one of those technologies whose time has come.”
