The ability to compare and contrast data across regions is a critical part of the site selection process. We've built this directly into ZoomProspector, the industry's leading online GIS data tool for corporate site selection.
Site selectors and businesses making significant location decisions need research and analyze key data points for all the regions in their long and shortlists. The newly redesigned Compare Communities feature in ZoomProspector makes it easy to select as many location as needed for side-by-side comparisons.
Start with any location within the client's geography and build out your comparison with other communities from across the state/ province or country. The scrolling table makes it easy to see each one stacked up against the client community.
Full reports compare a robust list of variables for demographics, labor force and consumer expenditures. See the data expressed in charts and in easy to read tables. Got a long list of communities to compare? No problem! The user-friendly scrolling table keeps the client community anchored in place so you can view it alongside each one of the others.
We are big believers in making data variables visual for clarity and ease of use, so you'll find variables stacked up in polished charts at the top of the screen; the tables below help website viewers see a variety of related variables alongside each other.
Site selection decisions can be complex, so online data tools must make it easy to engage with critical information. The clean, colorful design of the Compare Communities is one more way GIS Planning puts research, analysis and easy sharing right at your fingertips.
Click on Add locations icon to add communities from across your state/ province or country. You can keep track of them in tiled cards on the board.

When we looked at different options on the market for economic development organizations like ours, GIS planning really rose to the top. The data suite that complements the sites and building inventory was really what sold us on that.
