Extension professionals increasingly understand data as integral to economic development planning and related efforts.

The Economic Opportunity Mapping Tool provides industry-specific free online interactive maps to engage stakeholders in the process of economic development planning, while also helping connect the determinants of business location with real local data on industry establishments.
