ArcGIS Business Analyst Online is another product offered by the GIS Consortium to its members. Business Analyst Online combines GIS technology with extensive demographic, consumer spending and business data to create a powerful reporting, analysis, and mapping tool.
ArcGIS Business Analyst Online gives you detailed information about the demographic makeup of various populations such as their lifestyle and buying behavior. It also contains information about businesses in your market area along with the ability to perform drive-time, density, or threshold analysis and visualize your study on a map or as a table. Your study area is fully customizable, allowing you to search by rings, drive-times, hand-drawn shapes, or using standard geographies, such as municipal, state, and county boundary, block group, census tract, or ZIP Code.
