This section will provide links to the GUIDE Area Profiles and websites of participating areas, as well as the places where they publish data about their areas (whether on their own websites or through database services). 

Executives who are concerned about project confidentiality should be aware that some websites can potentially track their searches and may provide registration information or other details to their sponsors, clients, or advertisers.  Few websites do this, but it is a risk.  GDI Solutions does not track the actions of individual website users, and can help executives to gather information privately whenever such concerns exist.

We do not control, verify, or warrant the accuracy of the data which areas or service providers publish, and are not responsible for investment decisions which may be taken by executives, nor the advice they may receive from advisors who use such data.  Due diligence should be exercised by investors to validate any critical data for their plans.

The regional directories of economic development contacts provide additional sources of information worldwide, and the GIS Map Makers service will highlight participating areas which provide data maps or tools to map data, typically for analysis within one region or local area.

The section on Government or Related Services also provides links to many sources of information, as does the list of Associations and Publishers.
