Markham and Ottawa ON, Canada � Feb 22, 2007. DMTI Spatial, a leading provider of location intelligence solutions, has been selected by McSweeney & Associates, to power the Ontario East Economic Development Commission�s (OEEDC) new web portal. The application of neighbourhood level postal geography and detailed demographic data is advancing the tools available to site selection consultants and streamlining economic development processes.
The OEEDC�s web portal combines information from its 114 municipalities with demographic and geographic data into a single point of access for site selection consultants, businesses and other potential investors. Using demographic analysis coupled with mapping capabilities enabled by DMTI Spatial�s Platinum Postal Suite™, decision-makers can quickly compare potential locations at the micro-level, effectively improving the process for site selection.
�One of the best examples is a business looking to set up a call center facility in Eastern Ontario,� explained Eric McSweeney, President of McSweeney & Associates. �The site selection consultant can search from among hundreds of demographic variables to narrow their search. The analysis can be conducted at the 6-digit postal code level and have results rendered visually to quickly evaluate the best locations meeting specific site location criteria.�
The Platinum Postal Suite™ is a bundled solution containing the most comprehensive and detailed collection of Canadian postal geography products available that include enhanced Forward Sortation Areas (FSA) boundaries and enriched Postal Code Points. Platinum Postal Suite™ is the first solution to include Local Delivery Units (LDUs) explicitly represented as block group service areas, delivering unsurpassed precision down to the neighborhood level.
