Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Roanoke Valley-Alleghany Regional Commission (RVARC) developed the Roanoke Valley-Alleghany Regional Economic Development
Map Tool, an online mapping system using open source software that can be used free of cost. The application can display GIS layers created by RVARC in GoogleMaps, giving economic development officials at the Roanoke Regional Partnership the ability to use the map tool to locate and view sites, buildings, parcels, and enterprise zones for internal reference and external marketing. RVARC staff updates the website as needed to add layers or make other minor changes.
