BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (July 18, 2022) – The Economic Development Partnership (EDPA) will upgrade its site selection technology to GIS WebTech’s Guru platform, on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. Guru serves as capable, configurable, usable and brandable GIS technology for economic development.

Guru presents a clean, simple user experience, similar to the most popular GIS apps, and it offers configurable technology, which offers presentation of data that favors the individual user’s community and properties to tell their specific story. Guru includes a whole series of cutting-edge features unavailable in older technologies, like the ability to add local data (such as a local industry cluster) by simply dragging a spreadsheet onto the map.
