Gauteng Opportunity Atlas

The GIC is probably one of the first economic development agency centres on the African continent to deploy a Geographic Information System to define economic opportunities in the province.

These are derived from local economic development strategies, growth and development strategies, integrated development plans, municipal promotion materials, amongst others.

The Gauteng Opportunity Atlas will assist in the following areas:

  • Inform proper land use planning within the province
  • Ensure that land suitable for economic activities is allocated and reserved for the correct purpose
  • Enable investment promotion to be specific and area/region based
  • Serves as an information tool for investor, developers and public sector officials
  • Direct and inform public sector investments
  • Showcase Gauteng’s geographic advantage, despite it being a landlocked province
