Central Oklahoma Asset Mapping
With Funding from the Department of Labor and the Central Oklahoma Workforce Investment Board (COWIB), CSA has been working with COWIB while collecting data and developing a website to map assets and promote economic and workforce development within a 10 county region in central Oklahoma.
The project website is host to numerous links, sources and downloadable datasets and thematic maps, as well as the link to the interactive asset mapping application. The asset mapping application is a web-based version of a Geographical Information System (GIS) to be utilized by economic, workforce, community developers and others in community development and similar processes. Consisting of Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Kingfisher, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Oklahoma, Payne, and Pottawatomie counties, the data in the asset mapping application portray the demographic, workforce, and educational characteristics of the region and distribution of significant infrastructure, economic incentive zones and other key assets in central Oklahoma.
