LOIS also boasts a public marketplace with more than 50,000 listings and leverages geographic information system (GIS) layers to view information on workforce, infrastructure, business, and industry data and more. According to LocationOne’s website, “LOIS includes individual state, county, metro, locality (community), and site and building records. The system is designed to be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of the user; therefore, records can be elected to be ‘hidden’ or filtered from view on your web site. LOIS easily adapts to your changing needs.”
