InfoMentum is a suite of GIS-based data and mapping services based out of the South Carolina Appalachian Council of Governments (SCACOG). It offers four core services that support regional economic development:
1. InfoMentum Online – a restricted log-in GIS website which allows users to (1) quickly define an area, (2) generate up to 44 different types of market/demographic reports about that area, and (3) print thematic maps with their own agency logo at the top. It’s great for working with a prospect, performing market analysis, and conducting socioeconomic research.
2. Available Site and Building Marketing for Economic Development – the program houses a comprehensive database of SC industrial sites and buildings. For each county and city investor, we create a (1) custom property marketing website (example), (2) a mobile website (example), and (3) custom property flyers (example). Office and Commercial properties can also be marketed using these tools.
3. Special Research Services – the InfoMentum team tackles special socioeconomic research requests using GIS and variety of data sources. We support our investors through this service but also offer it to the public for an hourly fee.
4. Data for Economic and Community Development – InfoMentum maintains a free-to-the-public FactFinder database as a service to the SC Upstate region.
