3 .network websites have information about places of interest

1. FMH / Find Me Here.com: Primary Global Registry of Contacts (GRC) resource to search for a location. See the definition of location identity or CLICK HERE to search. The GRC in FMH is organized by global regions, for example, North America.

2. SLA / Site Location Assistance.com: SLA derives its name from the site selection aspect of enterprise development. In other words, the website has site selection resources.

Among the first things that a savvy site selector does is to search for places of interest and contacts in position to provide information about them. Contacts are identified among .network users as resource and service providers. SLA lists the same locations that are in FMH, except that the focus is on organizing around regions because site location projects are likely to target them first. Locations and contacts listed in SLA are also listed in FMH. SLA.

National Example: Search SLA for the name of a county or its abbreviation, such as United States of America or US. Using the US example, search for the name of a state or its abbreviation, such as Alabama or AL. Locations are listed by the same names in SLA as they are in FMH. SLA listings are enhanced however. For example: Local listings in US states are typically listed with counties and agencies to contact for resources. Webpage sponsors have pages organized the way they want them to be. Regional pages are organized around names of the cities (city regions) that are the center focus for economic development (area development) or names by which they are commonly known.

3. EDN / Economic Development Network website: EDN is designed for those who want to browse for places of interest. Like SLA its information about resource and service providers and its location listings are duplicated in FMH. You begin at the national level. For example, you select the United States of America under Area Development : List of Countries, then a state. The pages you find list resource organizations and links. They may also list location data suppliers and/or show links to their websites. Sponsors of pages in the SLA are listed in appropriate places with links and explanation.
