“What are the academic resources within various drive times from Anderson, SC?”


Anderson County, South Carolina has long enjoyed the economic benefits associated with its proximity to Clemson University – a major land-grant, science- and engineering-oriented research institution.  Still, an industry prospect could ask, “what other academic and research resources exist within an hour’s drive of Anderson? …two hour’s drive? …three hour’s drive? …four hour’s drive?”  To address this question, Burriss Nelson – Anderson County’s economic development director – contacted the InfoMentum staff for help.  Using their extensive research and GIS mapping skills, staff developed a map and accompanying list which identified colleges and universities located within each of the specified drive times.
