Data-Driven Decision Making

About Us

About Us

Slow population growth, aging of the developed world, climate change and migration will impact the nation socially, economically and environmentally.


New variables will play a significant role in migration, both domestic and international. The migratory impact on the housing market, local economies and state/local fiscal health will be significant, including the rise of new geographic areas and the demise of others.


Corporations and individuals continue to underestimate the financial risks and opportunities applicable to migration and climate change. The demand for risk related information is starting to surface, but the mispricing of assets - particularly in coastal areas - and misallocation of capital is rampant.  While many decision makers opt to fly blind, the opportunities may actually exceed the risks.


Focusing on real world applications, DAI provides location analysis tools to identify opportunities on a granular basis, assist with risk management and evaluate the credibility of those offering these services.

Data-Driven Decision Making

When analyzing current and future locations, dependable, relevant and useable data has become increasingly important to the decision making process, particularly when climate, economic, demographic, geographic and the competitive landscape is changing. 


In addition to analyzing/integrating multi-sourced federal geographic, demographic, economic and business data, our analytic tools include digital map databases, GIS software by ProximityOne and web-based interactive tables/data. 


By linking pertinent geographic, demographic and economic data - including the Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics & Bureau of Economic Analysis - Geostatistical data can be more usable than the data released by the Census Bureau and other Federal agencies. 


With emphasis on the future, high quality integrated data and unique tools - including ultra-granular microdata and an infinite number of attribute overlays - our forward looking commentary and analysis facilitates data-driven decision making.

Adapting to Changing Conditions & GIS Applications

 The challenges, risks and new opportunities applicable to the changing dynamics will fuel growth in the use of GIS applications. Beyond identifying geographic areas based on personal preferences, GIS software can identify high and low risk areas. 


Often known as attribute data, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) incorporate geographic features with tabular data to map, analyze and assess real world challenges, provide effective solutions and a competitive edge. 


With limited free time, realtors, home owners/investors, commercial developers, individual business owners, corporations, retirement planners and journalists have been slow to adapt to the solutions offered by GIS, including competitive analysis.


While most geographic areas have some form of economic and/or environmental risk, relationships will always be part of the sales process. Empowering users, staff, salespeople, intermediaries, consultants, realtors, retirement planners and others to add value, compete more effectively and grow their practice, the problem solving GIS is a powerful sales/presentation tool. 


They may fail to realize it, but the public already uses GIS map technology to monitor crime and child safety in a big way.  Individuals, realtors, retirement planners, investors and others can also use GIS technology to monitor weather, flood risk, contamination risk,  beach water quality, air quality, demographics, migration, livability, transportation,  household income, home prices, home price appreciation, employment opportunities other economic characteristics and much more.


By providing deep analytics around micro locations, GIS increases efficiency, provides more insight, produces a smarter search, adds value and  simplifies decision making.  In short, GIS takes marketing and decision making to the next level.
