We’re also getting a lot of questions on how to use the Economic Opportunity Maps (EOM), so we put together a User’s Guide: (https://communities.tamu.edu/files/2021/01/EOM-Users-Guide.pdf).
An Economic Opportunity Map (EOM) is a unique way for individuals to interactively explore business opportunities in their county across various industries.
This document guides readers through the mapping tool itself as well as elements of each EOM. We will begin by considering the different types of industries represented across these EOMs followed by a more detailed look at the EOM interactive mapping dashboard. Finally, we will point out some additional tools to assist users in interpretations and guiding discussion.
The Economic Opportunity Maps for counties all over the continental U.S. can be found here: https://communities.tamu.edu/economic-opportunity-maps/.
