Here is another map produced for the WIRED region. It shows two important attributes of the region - industry clusters by size (number of establishments) and location of public airports. No great insights yet, just one more tool to inform the process.
The North Central Indiana WIRED region is beginning to consider the role the region's airports play in economic development. Aviation Technology Professor Kyle Wagner presents thought-provoking information about the potential impact even small airports can have on economic growth. You can see a copy of Dr. Wagner's presentation here.
