• While location continues to be the leading factor determining leasing decisions, guiding investments and assessing property values, the technology used to inform the site selection process has evolved considerably in recent years.

 

  • No longer reliant upon traditional column and row spreadsheets, occupiers, developers and investors are now deploying powerful new tools that integrate science into location decisions and are revolutionising how information is connected to its geographic position.

 

  • Spearheading this trend are Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which can transform raw information into data-driven map-based visualisations illustrating complex analytics and geospatial relationships, helping uncover hidden opportunities and significantly enhancing the real estate decision making process.

 

  • This latest report in the WORK_IT series explains how GIS are informing occupiers’ location selection methodology as well as enhancing real estate design, construction and facilities management.
