Site selection tool

One Acadiana is excited to provide GIS planning resources for regional location and development activities. Geographic Information Science (GIS) is an ever-growing discipline that combines database information with geographic features for powerful display and analysis. The regional map illustrates data sets related to flood zone, wetland, pipeline, zoning, and other developmental concerns, allowing the user to choose the most ideal location for their operation. Our GIS tool also includes real-estate listings that can be sorted by intended use, e.g., industrial, office, commercial, land site.

Filling the region’s pipeline with competitive sites is imperative to our business recruitment efforts as well as site development efforts for the future. We have made major strides during One Acadiana’s inaugural year, through aggressive outreach in all nine parishes with presentations to our local land owners, economic development professionals, and real estate partners in the region.
