How PolicyMap Helps

By leveraging PolicyMap’s robust data and mapping capabilities, organizations can make smarter, more informed decisions when selecting sites. Whether opening a new store, launching a healthcare facility, or developing a commercial property, our platform equips you with the insights needed to identify high-potential locations and mitigate risks.

Market Understanding

PolicyMap’s data provides insights into local market dynamics, including demographics and economic trends. Understanding these factors helps businesses identify areas with high demand for their products or services.

Accessibility and Infrastructure

Data on transportation networks, walkability, and infrastructure helps businesses evaluate the ease of reaching potential sites for both customers and suppliers. This is crucial for ensuring efficient operations and logistics.

Financial Analysis

Data on property values, rental rates, and vacancies helps businesses evaluate the financial viability of potential locations. This information is essential for budgeting, forecasting, and making informed investment decisions.

Determine Tax Eligibility

Research eligibility criteria for tax credits or incentives offered through the Inflation Reduction Act or other legislation. This may include indicators such as job creation, clean energy investments, or specific industry targets. By identifying the qualifying locations, organizations can tailor their strategies to maximize their eligibility for tax credits.

Risk Assessment

Data enables businesses to assess various risks associated with potential locations, such as natural disasters, crime rates, and environmental hazards. Understanding these risks helps businesses mitigate potential challenges and ensure the safety and security of their operations.

Stop Wrangling. Start Analyzing.

For many organizations, curating authoritative geographic data is inefficient and inconvenient. Data must be gathered from hundreds of vendors with varied formats. Hiring resources with specialized knowledge and technical skills is an expensive, long-term investment.

Rather than collecting and updating data, why not focus on gleaning insights to stimulate discussions? With PolicyMap, the data is instantly ready for integration and analysis. We eliminate the need for users to scour multiple platforms, saving time and effort in data collection.

Visualizations to support geospatial analysis and location assessment

The platform is designed to lower the barriers to entry for advanced GIS analysis. Many of our customers have subscriptions to other GIS platforms but choose PolicyMap for the benefit of their less technical stakeholders.

Identify Incentivized Locations for Solar, Wind, and EV Charging Facilities

When it comes to energy and climate change, the Inflation Reduction Act sets forth a series of incentives and direct investments for projects designed to reduce carbon emissions, increase energy innovation, and support underserved communities. As a result, a number of these incentives are designed to support clean energy investments in very specific low-income communities around the country. PolicyMap can help make the identification of these places simpler.
