Description courtesy of the James J. Hill Reference Library:
Prospecting for a new business location can be taxing. If you have cities in mind you can research them one at a time, but what if you don't know where to start?
Zoom Prospector highlights available research on places, but focuses just on those aspects most essential to business interests. Look up a specific place, sure. Or, really take advantage of the site by building a list of communities that match your criteria - by size, employment growth since 2000, number of college/high school grads, white collar vs. blue collar jobs, median household income, and more.
This is a great tool for comparing U.S. places, whether your plans involve a new location or just getting to know your current one a little better.
This has some of the features of Citymelt.com, mentioned recently. Try them both and see what works best for you.
