We’re looking forward to the annual Esri User Conference next week in San Diego, where we’ll be presenters and exhibitors (if you’re going, stop by and see us at Booth #913).
Our partners at Esri are leaders in the development of GIS software. We teamed with them last year to add the companies on both sides of US import-export trade – as revealed by our trade data – to their ArcGIS maps, with links to the companies’ Datamyne Profiles, which include business demographics, a year’s worth of trade activities, and decision-maker contacts. (You can read more about this collaborative offering here.)
More recently, Esri published a series of interactive story maps that visualized our data on trade flows through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. (Read more about the story maps here.)
On Wednesday, Mark Condon, Datamyne business development manager, along with Jason Elliott of GIS Webtech, will demonstrate a new application for economic developers. Called Recruit, the app was originally developed for the South Carolina Power Team, an economic development alliance of the state-owned, electric utility, Santee Cooper, and the state’s 20 electric cooperatives. The new app combines Esri’s ArcGIS, Datamyne trade data, and CRM technology to produce information-rich maps that can be used to identify potential sources of and targets for foreign direct investment.
