New Interactive Tool, Developed by Esri, Visualizes Importance of NAFTA for U.S. States

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is pleased to introduce a new NAFTA-focused web application, prepared by Esri, the world’s most advanced technology provider of GIS and location intelligence. The tool allows manufacturers, workers, policymakers and other individuals to view historical trade flows of manufactured goods across NAFTA countries, including by individual state, groups of states, by year of imports and exports and compared to global trade flows. In the near future, the web app will be expanded to include historical, interactive NAFTA import and export data, at the state level and by product category.

This interactive tool developed by Esri, together with a series of detailed state fact sheets released by the NAM on May 4, helps to underscore the importance of extensive NAFTA relationships for manufacturers of all sizes and sectors across the United States.
