There are many wannabee imitators in the world of economic development and corporate site selection but ONLY one GIS Planning.



GIS Planning is the ONLY company that invented and disrupted the practice of online corporate site selection with the original ZoomProspector.


The ONLY online GIS data tool that is both mobile responsive AND fully featured, so you don't sacrifice your visitors' access to maps and all reports when they are using a smartphone or tablet to research your location. 


The ONLY location analysis tool that allows you to build in all your local layers, integrate Chmura's Jobs EQ, Emsi, and seven years of greenfield FDI data (analyzable by investment, country, jobs and sectors).

ZoomProspector is the ONLY GIS site selection software that offers fully dynamic reports, with engaging, interactive reports that don't force site selectors to rely on old school static PDFs.


GIS Planning offers the ONLY built-in drag and drop proposal generator on the market, so you can have polished, professional looking proposals ready to go in minutes.


GIS Planning is the ONLY service provider that consistently offers the newest and most innovative online GIS data tools to economic developers across the U.S., Canada and around the world.


GIS Planning is the ONLY company to add 50 new clients since the start of 2019, more than other vendors can claim in total clients.


The ONLY vendor to serve more than half of all US state-wide economic development organizations and the majority of the top 100 metro areas in North America. More than 65% of Americans and Canadians live in territories services by GIS Planning software. 


The ONLY vendor to win every single state-wide contract that has gone to bid this year, out-competing all others in side by side reviews. (Check out the beautiful newly launched GIS Planning online data tool launched this month by the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina).


The ONLY one software company with deep roots in the practice of economic development, founded and run by experts who worked for economic development organizations. 


ONLY one GIS Planning that is now owned by the Financial Times, the largest economic development services organization in the world. 


Don't be fooled by copycats, not all GIS companies are created equal: There is ONLY one GIS Planning. We are proud to have served the economic development industry for more than 20 years.
