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.
Select communities from analysis and see key variables at a glance on the tiled cards. This makes it easy to fine-tune your list. Click on Comparison Reports to research and analyze the full sets of data variables.
Selecting communities to compare is easy on the comparison board. Begin with a community from the client's geography, whether a city, county or region. Then click on Add Location to choose the communities for comparison. Each new choice is added to the board so you can see all selections lined up in cards with key data points to help you refine your selection.
Clicking on Comparison Report takes you to full, detailed reports for all selected communities. The polished, colorful charts at the top help website visitors visualize the data, while the tables below showcase the full data sets side by side. The first community from the client's geography stays anchored in the table, so viewers can scroll through other communities to see how they measure up.
Sharing has never been easier. Reports, charts, maps, infographics can be shared by email and social media at the click of a mouse.
Your website visitors can design and build complex custom visuals with layers and heap maps for their selected regions. Custom share links are instantly generated for easy sharing.
All the features on ZoomProspector are fully-featured on mobile, so you don't have to give up any functionality when using tablets and smartphones.
