The challenge

Steep competition from other regions or cities

Economic development agencies and departments across the country work hard to attract business owners and developers of all sizes to establish operations and investment in their area. But competition is steep with other regions or cities offering similar or better incentives, infrastructure, or business-friendly environments. 


The inability to capture the elements that make a region unique makes it difficult for economic developers to make the business case for a new venture to move to an area.

The solution

GIS software for putting economic development on the map

Properly depicting an area’s natural resources, built environment, and human capital helps economic development organizations pursue industries and promote the expansion of new and existing ventures. 


Success relies on demonstrating how a region’s infrastructure, land use, financial incentives, workforce capabilities, and educational institutions can benefit expansion or relocation. Latapult’s GIS software provides a holistic view.

Dynamic GIS mapping to evaluate economic benefits of land
