DevelopmentAlliance.com:

... website of Conway Data, Inc. which also publishes Site Selection, the official magazine of IAMC (Industrial Asset Management Council). DevelopmentAlliance.com was organized around a working relationship formed between the International Economic Development Council and Conway Data in 2001 when a task force of location data suppliers and site selection consultants completed a mission to identify the various elements of information that the latter participants typically requested or expected to see covered in promotional materials. Specifically, area and local development representatives were seeking a common format for information requests as well as to understand with certainly what consultants expected of them. The accomplishment of the task force as the "Development Alliance" was to produce as set of site selection data standards as guidelines. The Site Selection Standards were posted online and remain available for free download today at www.iedconline.org/?p=Data_Standards.

Www.developmentalliance.com is a fixture among Conway Data websites as a ... site selector's portal for community information. In other words.its a source of location data of interest to members of the .network core user group, especially those involved in the site selection process. In order to level the field of opportunity for site selectors to gather information it is recommended that you take a look at the definition of .network mission contacts.
