The Golden Isles Development Authority (GIDA) of Glynn County, Georgia is proud to launch their strategic economic development website, GoldenIslesDev.com to spur business growth, attract investment and create jobs. The beautiful new website is powered by GIS Planning's industry-leading technology for property search and analysis to promote the region for business relocation and expansion.

 The new economic development website and web tools make property listings and workforce data for The Golden Isles instantly accessible in a clear, relatable format to community leaders, site selectors, realtors, and businesses making location decisions. The intuitive, mobile-friendly web tool is free to use and requires no additional account to access information. 

GoldenIslesDev.com provides data and statistics including available labor pool, economic indicators, business resources, commercial site availability, key infrastructure, demographics, and targeted industries. 

A user-friendly, interactive data tool ensures that businesses making location decisions can view available commercial sites and buildings and research critical demographic, workforce, consumer spending, talent, and business data. The GIDA also makes extensive use of the standalone Intelligence Components to add interactive data to their web pages, such as a Community Profile infographic, talent pool data to track degrees conferred and top programs of study in the region, demographic data and much more.

GIS Planning data tools provide easy, direct access to the specific location, workforce and talent, and industry data businesses, organizations, and individuals need to make critical decisions,” explains McKenzie Padgett, Director of Business Development, GIDA.

“The Golden Isles Development Authority's vision is to strategically align the economic landscape in Glynn County to be the destination of choice for highly skilled talent, business formation, attraction, expansion, and retention. These data tools illustrate why the Golden Isles can be the destination of choice for you and your business.”

Stakeholders in the Golden Isles, including property owners, developers and listing agents have taken full advantage of the mobile-friendly tools to support business, create jobs, and power economic growth across the region.

The GIDA's new site location tool couples these listings and layers with additional proprietary data sources like Applied Geographic Solutions, National Center for Educational Statistics, Emsi, and DataAxle (formerly InfoGroup USA). Some key unique features include:

  • DEMOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS: Visitors can research population, education attainment, household information, and even employee types by distance or radius from a selected property, or even a pin on the map and export the information in ready-to-go reports.
  • BUSINESS REPORTS: The business database can help identify industry clusters and potential customers, competitors and suppliers. Use heat maps to visualize consumer spending across the region. An excellent resource as well for retail site locations.
  • WORKFORCE DATA: Powerful occupation, labor force, wage and talent data can help existing businesses and prospective investors make informed decisions to grow the regional economy.
