The digitization of the site selection process - already well underway in years past - has unquestionably been greatly accelerated by the pandemic. From online proposals and virtual tours to customizable local data layers, GIS Planning has cemented its position as the leader of economic development location analysis software with a constant stream of innovations, new features and new tools to help communities promote themselves online. True to form, we're kicking off 2022 by renewing our commitment to cutting-edge functionality with the launch this week of our new 3D rendering feature in ZoomProspector.
The easy-to-use 3D modelling feature is included at no additional charge for every single property in the system. Economic developers, site selectors, prospective investors and other website visitors can easily draw, customize, save and share stunning 3D renderings to help them picture their investments directly on the map.
The new feature adds both practical utility and an undeniable WOW factor. The 3D designs can be quickly and easily changed to different looks from office and mixed-use to green buildings or manufacturing facilities. Economic developers can choose colors that match their own branding. The feature means communities no longer need to wait for expensive, time-consuming renderings that could only be generated previously by professionals.
The eye-catching renderings can be shared with a link, added to your repertoire of designs (with names you choose) without the need of a login, as they are stored in your cache. The images can be shared via social media, in email newsletters, email campaigns, in presentations, printed collateral and online proposals. You can even save the images to use in the themed virtual tours you design with ZoomTour.
ZoomProspector is the only economic development software on the market to offer this easy-to-use 3D rendering feature for every single property in your database. Visit some of our example designs here on the Edmonton Global ZoomProspector, here on the Indiana Economic Development Corporation ZoomProspector or here on the City of Columbia (SC) ZoomProspector.
