Introducing the New York Business Atlas
New York's Office of Data Analytics has released a Google Map to provide local businesses with information that can help them in making more informed business decisions. The Atlas should provide an invaluable guide to anyone running or planning to run a business in NYC.
The NYC Business Atlas contains information on population & demographics, local business conditions and other useful information such as pedestrian activity in different areas of New York.
For example, if you were planning to open a new up-market restaurant you could use the atlas to explore the population and demographic distribution of potential locations for your business. You could explore the rate of potential pedestrian activity and you could also view areas with current high or low numbers of restaurants.
