Innovative online mapping tool to attract business

“Now businesses will no longer have to leaf through reams of Census Bureau reports for demographic information or contact multiple city departments for basic data and documents,” according to Bill Popp, president & CEO of AEDC.

The free site gathers economic, planning, infrastructure, geographic and demographic information often sought by businesses looking to relocate or expand into a ‘one-stop-shop’ business portal on the Web. It allows users to view, create and print maps; find available commercial or business property; and develop custom demographic radius reports.

Commercial realtors are invited to post their properties on the site. Check it out here.
