Introduction

The maps below facilitate navigation to regional directories of economic development contacts worldwide.  Click on any map to link to the relevant directory, or refer to Directories.  The directories often include links to more detailed maps for specific areas.  Refer also to our North American Location Guide map and directory, which are being prepared in cooperation with fDi magazine in 2007 as it launches the new fDi Atlas online research tool.

We welcome suggestions to guide our research, or to share additional sources of information and support services for capital investment project planning worldwide beyond the 20,000+ links we already provide.  We also provide various custom search tools and other research services through www.OnTheShortList.com

These regional maps are provided for ease of reference and navigation.  Mapping features may be added to this website in the future to make it easier to navigate quickly to content about participating areas, or to help visualize the relationships between areas for planning purposes.

Our US state directories include links to maps to help recognize where counties are located since many economic development organizations represent counties whose names would be unknown to executives in other regions, even if major cities within the state are familiar.  The directories are organized in postal zip code order, which usually keeps nearby areas together.

Try the new fDi Atlas for sponsored executive summary presentations about locations.

More detailed maps are available for US regions, Mexico, Canada, China, Brazil, the UK and Ireland, other leading countries of Europe, plus Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia and other areas.   Similar maps are linked from directories and presentations about local areas.  Some maps include "hot spot" links to other maps or content about business locations.

More sophisticated GIS mapping applications are sometimes used in location analysis work to visualize demographics, logistics, or other data.  We can introduce professionals who know how to do such work, but we don't provide such GIS services through this website.  Some of the economic development websites use GIS tools to present data or available properties.
