AUSTIN — Texas cities have a new resource to help attract business and development opportunities.
The Texas Workforce Commission, Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service and Decision Data Resources have developed SitesOnTexas 2.0.
This Web-based geographic information system software allows users to create reports and maps that support economic decisions and help track regional progress, a news release states.
“SitesOnTexas 2.0 is a geographic mapping resource that allows workforce and economic development professionals to effectively collaborate with employers and plan for business expansion, job retention and workforce training,” said Andres Alcantar, workforce commission chairman.
TWC is providing two licenses for SitesOnTexas 2.0 for each of its 28 local workforce development boards.
Other groups can get licenses to SitesOnTexas 2.0, including economic development, state and local government agencies, community colleges, utility economic development offices, regional planning commissions and chambers of commerce, the release states. For more information, go to SitesOnTexas.com.
